An urban legend that could perhaps be true is woven around a being that looks very much like a giant ape. He is known as the yeti or the abominable snowman who inhabits the Himalayan mountain ranges. Possibly, he has relatives around the world: the great foot of North America, the Yowie of Australia and the Kunk of South America.
Researchers of the mysterious and terrifying specimen claim that it is apparently a variety of the polar bear. It has been seen repeatedly by mountaineers seeking to reach Everest, the highest peak in the world, and describe it as a giant man full of white hairs and walking upright like any other human being.
It has been seen by explorers who are not natives of the place, but who annually go to climb this important tourist attraction. But the locals believe that this being is Migou, who lives in the frozen lands and avoids contact with men.
Before the appearance of Buddhists in the area, the Himalayas worshipped a deity known as “The Being of the Glaciers” and for them, he was the god of hunting. Buddhists also believe in mythical beings that inhabit the frozen mountains, but they ended the cult of this mysterious animal.
A controversial theory, suggested by the British geneticist Bryan Sykes, assures that the Yeti is a spice similar to the man and that it can get to measure up to 2 meters of height. He argues that perhaps it is a great hunter who has survived to this day, hiding in the mountains and was engendered by the crossing of a giant ape with a human being.
The famous Japanese scientist Yoshiteru Takashi, who is well known for being a great student of the subject, claims to have found traces of 46 centimeters in the area and states that the only objective of its existence is to find the origin of this mythical being that has been an enigma for modern man.
