The Yeti, most famous of all crypto-creatures next to the Loch Ness Monster, is also known as the "abominable snowman." It supposedly lives in the high Himalayas of India and Tibet. Most sightings have been claimed by the Sherpa tribesmen who live in those regions. There have been a few reported sightings of the creature and /or its footprints by Western explorers. It is said to be an ape-like creature from 5-8 feet tall with reddish-brown shaggy fur covering its entire body. Sometimes around campfires at night, Sherpas and Western explorers have heard the long soulful cry of the Yeti. Or so they say. The existence of Yetis has never been proven to everyone's satisfaction.
