Over many years now, more has been reported about the Sasquatch than the Yeti. This was the opposite when the wildman first got news coverage. Many people think they are the same species, but their footprint structure is different. The Sasquatch are more humanlike in appearance and design while the Yeti look more apelike. The top photograph is of mountaineer Eric Shipton who in the early 1950's found and photographed a line of Yeti tracks. The next photograph is a single track in the line Shipton found. The third picture is the line of tracks Shipton found. The fourth picture is of a plaster cast I have of a Yeti track. This cast is not an actual casting of one of the Yeti footprints, but an artists rendition of one of the prints photographed.
