Here's a picture of an alleged "Bigfoot" that seems to crop up rather a lot on the web. It looks to me more like someone messing around in a ape-costume than a genuine animal, and it bears a striking resemblence to the Bigfoot in "Harry and The Hendersons".

Anyway, here it is - see what you think.

I would normally say this is a hoax, but for two things...

1) I've seen several pictures of this creature from this case, in Florida, and you can see that it does have fingernails and the eyes are quite realistic. I'm willing to say its real.

2) I've covered the point about the eyes... so really there is no 2nd point.

3) I forgot to mention that the height. Its very tall compared to those plants. That would be a big hoaxer.

TB - it depends on the size of the plants and whether or not the hoaxer had acess to a crate or not ;D

never take me too seriously

I would say it's another FAKE.  :s8

Yep, it looks like another fake.

Maybe it's a REALLY TINY ape... and those are blades of grass. Hey, that giant ant looked rather fake in that documentary about shrinking... you know, "Honey I Shrunk the Kids".... maybe its just a syndrome of shrinking....

AUTHENTICITY/2(X/100) where as X = the ratio of shrinkage....

The "ape thing" definitely looks fake, to me.

The first conclusion that came to my mind when I saw the photo was that it was probably a model from the "evolution" section of a science museum. :sr

If not, then I don't know what to believe, but as for it's "spooky" eyes, I think it that was most likely a trick caused by the camera's flash, just like the common "red-eye" appearance on photographs.  :se

The plants are "palmettos" and can be found along the Gulf of Mexico, especially in Florida.  The being appears to be real, as evidenced by the red eye glare from the camera, which is caused by the light reflecting off the blood in the retina.  And the farther away from the subject you are when taking a picture, the higher incidence of "red eye".

So, I'd say that someone took a picture of an ape at a Florida zoo at night.
