The yeti

  1. 1. Shashank Kota
  2. 2.  Monks told legends of the story of a hairybeast in the Himalayas.This led to manysightings and may tell us the secret of thecreature ofThe Himalayas.The wordYeticomes from theTibetan name for thecreature yeh-teh which translates intoEnglish as “rock bear.”
  3. 3.  TheYeti lives in the Himalayas. TheYeti is also called the AbominableSnowman. TheYeti usually eats raw yak but they nowsurvive on ice chips and plants. TheYeti may be nocturnal because most oftheYeti sightings happen in the night. TheYeti may be the same thing as Bigfoot.
  4. 4. TheYeti is unknown
  5. 5.  Who:TheYeti Where:The Himalayas What:A hairy beast How: Unknown
  6. 6.  TheYeti may be a surviving relative of theGigantopithecus according to the Bigfoot-Gigantotheory. TheYeti may be a caveman TheYeti could be a demon but this is not based onscience. It is based on religion. TheYeti could be an alien. It could be a human dressed up asTheYeti. It could be aTibetan blue bear, a serow goat, or agibbon (a known type of ape).This came
  7. 7.  If theYeti was a surviving relative of theGigantopithecus, how is he surviving in theHimalayas? I predict that theYeti is using animal fat.
  8. 8.  As an alternate hypothesis, I predictthat theYeti is actually the RussianBlue Bear. Since an experiment to testHypothesis 2 is not feasible, I willanalyze the data collected from ascientific expeditions to support mytheory.
  9. 9.  TheTibetan blue bear, or Himalayan snow bear, isfound in theTibetan plateau.This bear was officiallyclassified in 1854 and is considered one of the rarestsubspecies of brown bear in the world. It is so rare,in fact, that very few people have actually seen one.Bone and hair samples have been collected andclassified as evidence of the species. Adult male blue bears can reach a potential heightof seven feet.
  10. 10. (Continued) In 1960, an expedition led by Sir Edmund Hillary setoff in search of theYeti. On Hilary’s expedition, locals in the Himalayansfound two clumps of fur belonging to the creaturewho knew as theYeti. This fur was later identified as belonging to theTibetan blue bear.
  11. 11.  TheTibetan blue bear is currently listed asendangered. Habitat reduction due to humansettlement has hurt the blue bear population,because they prefer to live alone and theyusually stay in specific territories. It makes sense that a rarely seen, yet officialspecies, such as the blue bear, could be thetrueYeti. This would explain why it is seldom seen.
  12. 12.  Lard( animal fat) 4 people Thermometer Tub with cold water 5 pounds of ice 4 gallon size Ziploc bags Journal
  13. 13. 1. First I poured 8 cups of animal fat( lard) in a gallon size Ziploc bag.Then I spread the animal fat evenly in the bagand added a second Ziploc bag in first bag to make a glove.This glove represents the animal fat of the yeti.2. Second I made a control with two empty Ziploc bags, one bag inside the other bag.3. Then, I added 5 pounds of ice cubes in a bucket of water. I allowed the bucket of water to reach zero degrees intemperature before I started my experiment.4. Then I tested my experiment by putting the glove made out of lard in one hand and putting the control glove inmy other hand.5. Before putting my hand in the water, I placed a thermometer in both the hands to measure the temperature.6. I placed my hands in the water for 1 minute7. After taking my hands out, I recorded the temperature shown by the thermometer in both the hands. I carriedthe experiment twice. Before putting the thermometer back in the water, I waited for the reading to come toroom temperature.8. Then the experiment was repeated by three more people, each person carried the experiment twice.
  14. 14.  1. Does theYeti live anywhere else than theHimalayas? There are fossil records(mandibles, teeth) ofa Gigantopithecus in China andViet Name.(Cameron, 2004) There are no fossilrecords of theYeti outsideof the Himalayas.
  15. 15.  2.When were the first clear tracks of theYetitaken? In 1951, by Eric Shiptonwhen trying to findTheYeti on aa glacier at 19,000 feet high inthe Himalayas.
  16. 16.  3.Which primate is mostly related toTheYeti? Gigantopithecus, an extinct animal.(Cameron, 2004)
  17. 17.  4. Do the Monks have any proof of theYeti? The Monks do have some proof.They have ascalp and a hand. None of this evidence hasbeen proven to be a trueYeti by scientists,although one scientist classified it as aNeanderthal.
  18. 18.  5.What did the Gigantopithecus have incommon with theYeti? They were both related to the orangutan.
  19. 19.  6. How manyYeties are there? There can be 1-2,000Yetis.
  20. 20.  7. Is theYeti a herbivore? No, he is believed to be an omnivore(carnivore and herbivore eater.)
  21. 21.  The first sighting was seen in 1925 A.D. by a Greekphilosopher namedTambazi who saw a ape like creature.He followed the tracks on the snow but they ended. In thenext few months there were manyYeti sightings. Eric Shipton and MichalWard took a clear photo of aYetitrack in 1951 A.D. The famous Sir Edwin Hillary went to Mount Everest forhis fifth time and found aYeti track. Another incident is when a Shepa girl told people that shewas dragged by an ape like creature. She also said that thecreature let her go because she screamed loudly. In 2011 A.D, the “ Indisputable proof” was found. A monthlater Jeff Meldrum proved that this was a hoax from theRussian government.
