Big Foot, also known as Sasquatch, Yeti, Sassi and sometimes, simply, the Big Guy, is a large ape-like creature that supposedly roams the forests of the Pacific Northwest. Big Foot is bipedal and humanoid. Covered in hair, reportedly 6 feet or more tall and weighing nearly 500 pounds. Big Foot is usually described as a gentle and shy giant. Most scientists consider Big Foot sightings to be hoaxes and Big Foot as a purely mythological creature, but scientist Jeffrey Meldrum, Associate Professor of Anatomy and Anthropology and Adjunct Associate Professor of the Department of Anthropology at Idaho State University, has published academic papers on Sassi.
