Skunk Ape number 10 is probably an uprooted tree stump. We don't have before/after pictures afterall.

The bigfoot that got caught crossing the road scurries off to the roadside and ducks down as it *hides behind a tree*!!  Childsplay, lol I don't really see anything that is reason to study for very long. But I do appreciate their efforts, mostly.
