Hi Tailorman. The sun bear has been considered of course, but taking into account that cannabis is a local cash crop and is smoked or chewed by most jungle people above the age of seven, there's no telling what's been seen!

Another interesting cryptid story I have encountered is the Ngoloko, or Nandi Bear. This time in Kenya, but that's another story.
Sorry, I forgot to say "Hi!" :)

The object, known by the locals as "Bicho Voador" (Flying Animal), or "Bicho Sugador" (Sucking Animal), has the shape of a rounded ship and attacks people in isolation.

I'm not the most qualified person in the whole world, no, but I do have a science degree in Computing With Astronomy.

I am not familiar with that degree.  Where did it come from?

Th University Of Hertfordshire which includes the Bayfordbury Observatory. It's where Sir Patrick Moore studied Astronomy.

You didnt seem to have any takers on your hyrax comment on that page.  Thats a far cry from saying the expedition members backed up the claim you made in the thread title.  Freeman doesnt seem to have any valid arguments other than personal insults.

It's somewhere else that the encouragement from a team member led me to make that previous comment. It wasn't Richard Freeman, he hasn't joined the discussion on this other site.

Giant Hyrax which has been identified as the Orang Pendek of Sumatra by hair analysis from a find in 2001. Check the report photographs against the rock hyrax ventral hair pictures which can be found online. View Extreme Expeditions on facebook for easy viewing. (Wow)

How can one unconfirmed species be identified as another unconfirmed species ?

Not only that but the Orang Pendek is supposed to be a small bipedal ape-like creature, not a giant dog.

Does your notion of support amount to one comment on a facebook page?  It seem somewhat humouring at most, he even says there are many differences.  Or am I missing some other interaction on another site?

I'm curious, Tailor, how did you first come across Hyraxes? (I'm not sure what their plural is..)

Bad machine.

I think he first IDed a crypto as a hyrax based off the honey swamp monster, because it had three, or four webbed toes, like a hyrax.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.
