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 or any of it's cousins (Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Yeti or Yowie) 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
Skunk apes are hairy humanoids sighted in many areas of North America including but not limited to the swamps of Florida to the Appalachian region in Tennessee, North Carolina, Kentucky, Georgia and Virginia. The “cousin” of the Skunk-Ape known as Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Yeti, have been generally found in the Pacific Northwest. The Skunk Apes have distinct physical appearance differences including, but not limited to the size, footprint, oversized head and most distinctly, the “skunk like” smell.
The fur color of Skunk Apes is usually darker in nature with some rumored to have a tail. It also has been described to have a white color on its head and sometimes on its chest. If a tail exists, it is frequently like that of a wolf or fox. Some Skunk Apes have been described as up to ten feet tall, with an average height of about seven feet.
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.
