Bigfoot, also known as sasquatch, is an ape-like cryptid that purportedly inhabits forests, mainly in the Pacific Northwest region of North America. Bigfoot is usually described as a large, hairy, bipedal humanoid. The term "sasquatch" is an anglicized derivative of the word "sésquac" which means "wild man" in a Salish Native American language.


Asia's answer to Sasquatch is similar to its American counterpart in that the creature supposedly stands 10 feet tall or more, is covered in hair, and has humanlike characteristics —such as the ability to walk upright —that suggest it might be the missing link. And as its name suggests, Bigfoot is known for its massive foot size and the craterlike prints it leaves in the ground where it walks. In recent years, however, Malaysian wildlife officials have begun to question the creature's allegedly reclusive nature, claiming that they are not solitary but rather reside in tribes. Last year, after a spate of sightings, the government of Malaysia's Jahor province commissioned a team to search for Bigfoot, marking the first time that cryptozoology has been openly endorsed by politicians.
