I recently read a short article about bigfoot type creatures in Vietnam which American troops referred to as "Rock Apes". I was wondering if any of our members (Veterans especially) have any first or even second hand stories regarding these creatures.


Thanks in advance.

I guess you already know of this site, but it gives a bit more information about "rock apes":

Thanks for the link!

Oh I wasn't saying vets only at all, just seemed the most relevant because of the article I read earlier. I know its a little off topic but I absolutely love first hand accounts of sightings of all kinds, please post!

People have claimed they saw Bigfoot around here.  Wonder if Rock Apes and Bigfoot are the same.

If a cryptid ape were to be found, vietnam would be agood place to find it, it is already known as a hotbed of new species discovery, and some of the most recent large (relativly speaking) new mammal species discovered have come from there.

That's the theory anyways. I do find it interesting that BF has been reported as supposedly throwing rocks at people, and  these creatures were dubbed rock apes by the troops because they threw rocks at them.

Given the difference of thier habitats (and physical descriptions, with the rock apes being described as smaller in many or most instances than in similar big foot sightings), I doubt that 'big foots' and 'rock apes' would be the same species, should both turn out to exist.

Maybe maybe not, heck there are bears in the jungle and in the arctic , jaguars in the jungle and the desert, so, theoretically, why not Bigfoot in the jungle and in the forest? Assuming either actually exists of course.

you will note that jungle dwelling bears and arctic swelling bears are not the same species, despite both being 'bears'.

One would thing that a war zone would be a fairly dangerous place for a bigfoot-type creature.  Surely if there were a breeding population, one would have turned up dead somewhere.  Particularly given that many other native animals in Vietnam ended up getting caught in the crossfire.

Of course, yet still related. Even within the forest dwelling bears there are great variations in genetics based on location.

According to the VAST research ive done, LOL not really I just heard of these things today, they were caught in the crossfire quite often. The cryptomundo link posted above links to a couple of really neat stories some of which , especially the comments below the article, adress your post.

I was stationed up North both times, heard all sort of stupid stories, mostly bored GI's and Marines passing the time.
