Image YOWIE
The Yowie is the Australian equivalent of Bigfoot. Also known by the name “Yahoo”, the creature varies quite widely in description. But, in general, it is noted to be around 6 feet tall, covered in dark hair, with a disagreeable smell. Native Aboriginal legends appear to describe a yowie-like creature. This myth has become very popular in the local culture. However, the reality of the Yowie is highly questioned since few reliable accounts and practically no pieces of physical evidence exist. Plus, the chance of a large, manlike monster, unknown to science, surviving on an island continent, is remote. Yet, today, colorful accounts of Yowie encounters are still reported. It is nearly impossible to tell whether the historic and current reports are accurate, exaggerated or purely imagined.
