Full Answer

In Florida, where Bigfoot is known as the Skunk Ape, three men reported seeing the creature in New Smyrna Beach in 2011. In colder climates, Bigfoot is known as the yeti. In 2013, an 11-year-old boy filmed what Igor Burtsev, director of the International Centre of Hominology in Moscow, believes to be the clearest footage of the creature in Russian history. In 2014, the Discovery Channel aired a documentary called "Russian Yeti: The Killer Lives." In it, explorers and cryptozoology experts suggest that a yeti was responsible for killing nine college students on the Dyatlov Pass in the Ural Mountains of Russia.

Eyewitness estimates of the creature's height range from 6 to 9 feet, while weight estimates were from 200 to 500 pounds. Accounts for the creature's speed estimate movement as fast as 22 miles per hour. Researchers and biologists maintain that eyewitness accounts are the most unreliable forms of evidence, and no indisputable empirical evidence exists to support the existence of Bigfoot.
