Attenborough 'would like to find the Yeti'

Naturalist Sir David Attenborough has expressed an interest in locating the Abominable Snowman.
Attenborough had previously mentioned the Yeti last year when he said that he believed the creature could be real.

Speaking this week at the launch of UKTV's new "Natural Curiosities" series, the 88-year-old added that there were still "one or two" mythical beasts that he had an interest in discovering.

"There is still a mystery about the Abominable Snowman," he said.
"There are teeth that were found back in the 1920s, huge molar teeth about six times the size of ours, immense things, they were found in a Chinese druggist's store and undoubtedly are the teeth of a giant ape that must have lived relatively recently."

The naturalist was keen to emphasize however that while a mysterious primate species may have once roamed the Himalayan region, it is quite possible that it has since gone extinct.

"It is not impossible that it might exist. If you have walked the Himalayas there are these immense forests that go on for hundreds of square miles which could hold the Yeti," he said.

"I don't say I necessarily believe in it, I'm saying that there is evidence and of course one of the very difficult things ever to do is prove a negative, to prove that it doesn't exist."

With new evidence pointing towards a relic bear specie, mixing with modern brown bears, this would be an amazing adventure. Or perhaps the traditional sasquai body form, trekking the Himalayas...with Sir David narrating the search and adventure.

I think everyone would like to find it, IF it is a real unknown creature. Trouble is, it could all be myth and legend and no amount of searching will dissuade the believers, it will always be "just around the corner."

The Yeti probably is some kind of bear, maybe an unknown species. Does the Yeti have to be a Bigfoot to exist?

Cave Bear?

The Yeti would dress like a sir and come out and greet sir David as it would be a great honour and pleasure to meet the man.

It would be a Bi-Polar Bear.

I want Jacques-Yves Cousteau's disinterred body sent on a quest to find the mythical mermaids. Now that sounds like good film making.
