Nick Redfern takes a look at Adam Davies' expedition to Sumatra in search for the Orang-Pendek.
Davies will be leading a team from Britain’s Center for Fortean Zoology to the depths of Sumatra to find the bigfoot-like ape creature that is rumoured to exist there. Davies himself believes that the creature is real without question, citing numerous eye-witness accounts from locals and even one from fellow CFZ member Dave Archer in 2009.
"Adam notes that success was all achieved in 2009, when “the hair samples we brought back were analyzed by Lars Thomas, who again came to the conclusion that they were from an ‘unknown primate."
