Many people are not aware that there does exist in the fossil record a creature very similar to the Sasquatch, but larger. It was discovered in China in 1935 and named "Gigantopithecus Blacki" The creature was first discovered by G.H.R. von Koenigswald, he along with other scientists of the time traveled to China and searched the markets there for "dragon bones" often fossils of extinct animals. He procured numerous teeth, and many species are represented by nothing more than teeth found fossilized. Since then, Chinese scientists have discovered many teeth and 4 jaws of the Gigantopithecus. They have determined that the Gigantopithecus grew up to 12 feet in height and weighed as much as 1200 pounds, which makes it larger than the sasquatch which averages 8 feet in height and 800 pounds. scientists believe it stood erect and walked bipedally as do humans and the sasquatch. With the huge gaps in the primate fossil record, and the fact that a species of creature very similar to the Sasquatch actually did exist, then the existence of the Sasquatch is very reasonable and not so incredible as many people might believe.
