Sasquatch actually was not mythological to be honest. There was something in prehistoric times called the Gigantopithecus which was a 9-10ft tall upright ape. That IMO is where the whole Sasquatch thing came from if you ask me. Gigantopithecus were actually somewhat recent by prehistoric time frames with their extinction being only 100,000 yrs ago. Which seems like a long time to us but in history of the world times that is actually a blink of an eye. I highly doubt there are any left even in the far reaches of the world, but you can never say never.  Case in point are gorillas. They were not even discovered till about 1850 or there abouts. So there's always a slim chance that something is out there we do not fully know about. In America though? No, I'd say not a chance anywhere in N.America. Maybe a slim 1% chance in some far off jungle, but even then....

 

Fun to imagine though. Far off wild monsters have always peeked mans interests.

Your giant was in SE Asia, though and the Sasquatch is purely N.America, there were also the Yeti and the giants of the Bible, as you say we don't yet know the full story.

A few years ago it would been outrageous  to say humans have Neanderthal ancestry, talk about miscegenation.

The story still comes from Gigantopithecus. It's the same with many other "monsters". If something existed in one part of the world then it's only a matter of time till you hear people in other parts of the world saying they have seen it where they are. My point was simply that the legend of Sasquatch is most likely rooted in what was once a real creature in China and Indonesia.

There are so many trail cams out there now days if there was a Bigfoot we would have a legit picture of one by now.

Maybe we haven't captured on on camera because it is so ugly that it fears exactly this. Oh wait, then that would then be a Squonk. What is a Squonk, you say?

 

According to wikipedia:

The legend holds that the creature's skin is ill-fitting, being covered with warts and other blemishes and that because it is ashamed of its appearance, it hides from plain sight and spends much of its time weeping.  Hunters who have attempted to catch squonks have found that the creature is capable of evading capture by dissolving completely into a pool of tears and bubbles when cornered.

 

 

This explains it!!

Being short and hairy, the kids at work have decided that I am a dwarf Sasquatch. Yeah, they are scared of me...lol

I would not shoot one. I would lasso it and bring it in.
