I believe that there are many undiscovered species & that there is a creature that is seen & called Bigfoot but I bet if ever one is officially found it will be different from all the ideas we have of it. In history we have had many animals misidentified & written off as a nonspecies for example the rhinoceros was first believed to be a unicorn & the public was told gorillas where fictitious creatures that could never be real!

 My son loves that show! Being West Coasters, Big Foot lore is huge.  A big part of me kind of laughs it off as a hoax, but there's a small part that says "Who knows?" :)

 We like watching that show too :)
Growing up in the Kettle Morain Glacier park region in Wisconsin, I grew up on Big Foot stories lol. Now being in the Appalachians in West Virginia, I hear tons of stories too.
There is the skeptic in me that believes it isn't big foot, but something being mis-identified, and then there is the other part of me that is more optomistic that knows that we have not discovered all the different species of plants and animals in the world, so there very well could be something out there like a big foot.

We all love that show too.  I can believe that there is a creature similar to a Bigfoot that has not yet been identified.  There are too many reports (yes, I know many are fake) for something not to be out there.  There are also new species of animals/plants made every year..

Well, I think that someone would have seen them in the areas they have been reported and actually caught. So, no. Something that big cannot be seen by one person then hide when so many others are looking.

I totally agree with this. I know there are tons of animals as yet undetected. There have been a bunch in the last few years that have been discovered. So it really wouldn't surprise me if there was such a creature. It also wouldn't surprise me to discover 99.99% of what we attributed to the creature is false..lol.
