"Yetis are as pure and white as snow...

Yetis have a soft side that they don't show...

Yeti this Yeti that, Yetis rule and u know that" - Capt. Terpin Timins


Yetis are creatures supposedly created from myth and fiction. They are large tempestuous creatures. Yetis can be classified in the same family as the Sasquatch and Big Foot. Many people believe that Yetis aren't real and are illusions of men who have claimed to have seen them. After researching them I want to say that Yetis are warm and cuddly but do not try to hug a Yeti.

Yetis have evolved from human like hominids. Yetis are human like in the characteristics that we share like the opposable thumb, a large brain, and the ability to stand erect.

Is there proof of Yeti life?

Yes, although it is not common knowledge there is proof of the Yeti, Yeti fossils have been recovered from many regions that were covered in ice at some point in time millions of years ago. Although the fossils were not complete and the Yeti body structures were obviously missing pieces there is no denying the Yeti presence.

In developed parts of the northern or southern arctic regions many locals claim to have had Yeti encounters. Yetis have been seen looking for food, preying on smalls animals. Locals claim that Yetis have even attempted to pillage cities for example in 1963 in
