However, there have been a couple of sightings in the UK, which has left Brits fascinated.
Although scientists believe Bigfoot is a combination of folklore and misidentification, there are many other theories as to what the mysterious creature is. Some people believe Bigfoot is a large ape, others believe the creature could be a prehistoric human, and some believe even stranger theories - attributing Bigfoot’s existence to alien origins.
There have been ‘sightings’ of Bigfoot in Lincolnshire woods, Wales, Devon, Cornwall and Sussex.The people who claim to have seen the creature in action describe it as having large eyes, a pronounced brow ridge, a large forehead, with a rounded head and an unpleasant smell. The footprints which have been seen at the ‘sightings’ claim to be as large as 24 inches (60cm) long and 8 inches (20cm) wide.
