Alma



Also Almasty, Albasty, Abnuaaya, Bekk-Bokk, Kaptar, Mulen, Voita.

A large humanoid creature that is thought to live in the Caucasus mountains in central Asia and in parts of southern Mongolia. Unlike more common reports of the Yeti and Bigfoot in the west the Alma more closely resembles a wild human form than a bipedal ape, its name literally means "wild man" in Mongolian. The creature has been reported for hundreds of years by people in these regions and is considered something of a legend to the local population.

Sightings


One of the most recent sightings of the Alma was in 1992 when some footprints were found in Mongolia. Earlier sightings included an incident in 1972 when a Russian doctor allegedly encountered a "family of Almas". In 1985 there was another similar report made by Maya Bykova who claimed to have witnessed an "unknown humanoid".

Theories


Some cryptozoologists believe there could be a real creature involved in these reports given the remoteness of the region, one theory is that the Alma is a remnant human species such as the neanderthal. To date no conclusive evidence for the existence of the creature has been found.
