BREAKING NEWS: SkunkApe Survives COVID-19
After months of silence, the illustrious SkunkApe seems to have survived the COVID-19 pandemic. This is the first report of SkunkApes outside of Florida in a few years. It seems they may have migrated north from Florida to a cooler climate. Recent reports out of Tennessee and Virginia have both corroborated that he (and she) are indeed alive and well. More to come soon as we send our investigators to research these sightings.
Please see our Facebook page (@skunkapelives) or our Sightings page in this website to report any information you may have to help us solve this mystery.
The Story of the SkunkApe
The first "known" substantial sighting of a SkunkApe was in 1974 in the Florida Everglades. Since this time, many people and organizations have been following and researching this creature. There have been many reported sightings since this time and we have witnessed the migration north, possibly caused by climate change. As the “Official SkunkApe Tracking Website”, SkunkApes.com has deployed many researchers in search of truth. We have documented sightings in numerous U.S. states that prove the SkunkApe is migrating north. As you will see in our official tracking map, sightings have been reported in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee, West Virginia, North Carolina, Kentucky, and Virginia. Most recent sightings have been in Tennessee, and Virginia. We will continue to keep the tracking map updated as reports are reported and confirmed.

Is He Real?
What is hairy, 7' tall, weighs 300 pounds, and smells like rotten eggs, moldy cheese, and dung? People around the United States and the world call it SkunkApe, Nape, Swamp Cabbage Man, Yeti (Dweller among the rocks), Sasquatch (Wild Man), Myakka Skunk ape or Bigfoot. They may be the same creature, or they could be the incestual production of some type.
The alleged SkunkApe is considered a cryptid. It is thought by many to be related to Big Foot, but it is actually a Pongid, or Great Ape. The SkunkApe supposedly hides in muddy, abandoned caves which is thought to create the awful "skunk like" smell. Over the years, there have been numerous sightings of these large mammals throughout the U.S. Reportedly, these "SkunkApes" live in swamps, caves, forests, open grasslands, and at the edge of your backyard. Thought to be mostly vegetarian, there have been enough occurrences that one would believe they probably indulge in meat, too. The most famous such photographs were taken anonymously and mailed to the Sarasota Sheriff's Department in Florida in the year 2000. These photos are known as the Myakka Skunk-Ape photos. While these photos are arguably the most famous, there have been many more photos taken of the alleged SkunkApe. Some of these are posted on this site. We cannot attest to any of these alleged sightings, but we have only been able to disprove one of them as can be seen on our “Sightings” page of this site.
