According to urban legends, Yeti is a two-legged white, shaggy ape-like animal and is described to be 10-20 feet tall. The footsteps found by the Army had measured 32x15 inches, clearly suggesting that they did not belong to a human.
With the Yeti dominating discourses — humorous and scientific both — courtesy the Indian Army’s tweet last week, we track the footprints of yet another mythical beast. Meet the Khenglong-po, the hairy wild man of Assam’s Karbi Anglong.
Army has claimed large footprints it has seen are of the Yeti. The mythical creature has often been the subject of expedition reports and depicted in popular culture, but there is no scientific evidence that it exists.
Yeti spotted? The Army said its Mountaineering Expedition Team found the Yeti's footprints, measuring 32.15 inches, near the Makalu base camp in Nepal on April 9, 2019, and posted pictures of this sighting.
With a Yeti "sighting" in the news again, here are some children's books to introduce your little one to the legend of the abominable snowman or Bigfoot! These story are fun, whimsical and informative as well.
