Bigfoot Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch, is an ape-like cryptic that rportedly inhabits forests, mainly in the Pacific Northwest region of North America. Bigfoot is usually described as a large, hairy, bipedal humanoid. The term "Sasquatch" is an anglicized derivative of the Halkomelem word sásq’ets. The Yeti or Abominable Snowman is an ape-like crypt's said to inhabit the Himalayan region of Nepal, and Tibet.[2][3] The names Yeti and Meh-Teh are commonly used by the people indigenous to the region,[4] and are part of their history and mythology. Stories of the Yeti first emerged as a facet of Western popular culture in the 19th century Sightings of Bigfoot, also called Sasquatch, were first reported in parts of the United States and Canada in the early 1800s. Since then there have been hundreds of reports of a large, hairy hominid or ape Bigfoot has been part of Native American belief for hundred of years and has several different names. In the 1920s, J.W. Burns started to take the stories from the Native American culture and made a series of Canadian newspaper articles. Burns coined the name "Sasquatch" from the word "Sésquac", meaning "wild man", to use in his articles.

How Bigfoot got its name
In 1958, a worker named Jerry Crew at Ray Wallace's construction company found large 16 inch human-like footprints. The story was picked up by the Humbolt Times of Eureka, California. They used the name "Bigfoot" in the newspaper article. This was the first time the name was used and eventually stuck, replacing the name "Sasquatch". After Ray Wallace's death in 2002, large wooded feet were found and has been suggested that this event was a hoax Since 1958, thousands of large bipedal footprints have been found throughout North America. These footprints are said to be tracks left behind by Bigfoot. Footprints are the most common form of evidence to support their existence. A plaster cast or photograph of the prints are often taken. The footprints come in a variety of sizes, with the average length being 16 inches long. Bigfoot has been described to have omnivorous eating habits. It is thought that the creature's diet mainly consists of plant materials with some meats. Common foods consist of nuts, fruits, berries, and various animals. Bigfoot is thought to eat any foods that may be available, as well as migrate to find better food sources. Experts say a creature the size of Bigfoot would need a large food supply to sustain a population and require 5000 calories a day Food sources

The Loch Ness Monster (Scottish Gaelic: Niseag) is a cryptid that is reputed to inhabit Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. It is similar to other supposed lake monsters in Scotland and elsewhere, though its description varies from one account to the next. Popular interest and belief in the animal has varied since it was brought to the world's attention in 1933. Evidence of its existence is anecdotal, with minimal and much-disputed photographic material and sonar readings.

The most common speculation among believers is that the creature represents a line of long-surviving plesiosaurs.[3] The scientific community regards the Loch Ness Monster as a modern-day myth, and explains sightings as a mix of hoaxes and wishful thinking.[4] Despite this, it remains one of the most famous examples of cryptozoology. The legendary monster has been affectionately referred to by the nickname Nessie[5] (Scottish Gaelic: Niseag)[1] since the 1950s. B loch ness elephant
