What is this creature ? Image Credit: Facebook / The NightRaiders
A photograph of an alleged Bigfoot-like creature that was spotted in a forest has been doing the rounds online.
Bigfoot legends can be found all across the world and Singapore, which is said to be home to the elusive Bukit Timah Monkey Man (or BTMN for short), is no exception.

Believed to wander the forested Bukit Timah region, this tall, bipedal hominid has been sighted several times over the last few years and now it has even been captured on camera.

The image, which shows the dark outline of a gorilla-like creature, was taken by Alfie of the NightRaiders - a group that explores locations around Singapore under cover of darkness.

"This year, one of our equipment specialist, Alfie, followed [a rival] group for a mission and also to test his paranormal equipment in this particular jungle," a Facebook post about the incident reads.
"During that particular night, they witness BTMM and our specialist manage to capture in a split seconds. He said BTMM this time is really huge."

"BTMM is a another type of mystery creature called Bigfoot. Some people says it's a folklore, some say it's a djinn( evil spirit )."

But is this really evidence of an unknown creature or is there a more conventional explanation ?

You can view the picture in more detail below.

Could be a zoo escapee if the area is close to the zoo. Big foot is different .Why, because for hundreds of years Native Americans have talked about creatures like BigFoot, Wendigos, Skinwalkers etc. Never have heard of this guy.

Isn't it amazing how no one can take a clear, crisp shot of a two meter tall, half ton behemoth?

Must be around breakfast time. I’ve always been told if you make toast in the jungle to shove it under the griller.

One can travel on foot from west coast to east coast of Singapore in a single day. Where you think the ape can hide?
