I read in this months Fortean Times that they are having Bigfoot hairs DNA
analysed at Ohio Uni. Anyone know of the results. It is also claimed that a
Chinese hair analysed bore no resemblance to any known primate.
With reference to the identity of the possible hominid:
Neanderthal: too short but last remains only 27,000 years ago.
Gigantopithecus: too tall (14 ft., I think compared to Bigfoots 7 ft.) and last
remains are in the region of 1 million years old. But there are three sites in
China where G is found with early human remains (Longuppo being one).
