Have you heard of the Florida Skunk Ape? This type of bigfoot creature may or may not actually exist.
The Skunk Ape is an elusive and mysterious beast often spotted in the swamps of Florida and other southern states. Like Bigfoot, the Skunk Ape walks on two legs, and is covered with thick brown or black fur. It’s a massive animal, sometimes reported as seven feet tall or better.
In some locations it is known as the Swamp Ape. Many Bigfoot researchers believe the creature is either a close relative of Sasquatch, or one and the same species.
While other Bigfoot-like creatures get cool local names like the Wild Man of the Woods or the Wood Devil, this poor guy gets stuck with Skunk Ape. Why? Well, it’s not because he smells like flowers. Many witnesses report the creature gives off a horrible stench, which can often linger even after the intruding cryptid has departed. It’s an unfortunate moniker, and one can imagine the beast is no doubt extremely sensitive about it.
Bigfoot seems to be everywhere, from the Pacific Northwest to the Himalayas and even in the hottest swamps of the southern United States. What is Skunk Ape doing there, how is he surviving and how has he avoided detection for so long?
Like Sasquatch legends everywhere there is no clear-cut answer.
Sightings of the Skunk Ape are reported every year in the southern US. People are definitely seeing something lurking in the swamps. …
