Does anyone know what size (height) the biggest Bigfoot ever reported was said to be? I don't sift though hundreds of random BF reports and have never met a real life witness.

BUT...On Finding Bigfoot the show, one of the witnesses they talked to said they saw a Bigfoot about 11 or 12 feet tall. I know most people on that show claimed 9 feet or under. How large do you think these things can grow (if they are real)? 11 or 12 feet tall seems SCARY huge.

TF, do a forum search for a thread called "The Tallest Bigfoot" started by Spader. I'd link it here but my "smart" phone won't let me copy and paste.

*edited to add that I have personally heard from a witness claiming 12 feet, and have read reports claiming 14-15 feet.

Thanks! Holy cow! Someone in that thread said they thought it was 16 feet tall...I can't even imagine that!

This is an excellent article by W.H. Fahrenbach on Sasquatch Dimensions and Traits. From his data set he seems to say at the far end of the range of size distribution the largest would be 9.5 feet tall, with 24" long tracks, a 77" chest, and weigh 1040 lbs.

http://www.bigfooten...logy/henner.htm

This motorist sighting report estimated the height at 11 feet tall. The drawing in the report sure does get your attention.

http://www.bfro.net/...rt.asp?id=20173

This site says sightings up to 14' tall in Canada have been seen.

http://www.bigfooten...m/sightings.htm

Cryptomundo in this article noted the Canadians are suggested to be a separate tribe or race of "true giants" by researcher Mark Hall, ranging from 12-14 feet.

You might want to check out the book "True Giants" by Mark Hall and Loren Coleman. I haven't read it, but it is about the possibility of something out there that's bigger than bigfoot.

Thanks for the heads up, Bonehead74. I looked it up on Amazon and also ran across this very interesting link, noting true giant stories from around the world. Some are said to be.... I think you should read it yourself.

Huge.

That sounds fascinating, but far fetched. I mean...if there are these enormous giant beings out there in the world, why haven't more people seen them roaming around? Surely they can't stay hidden in too many places for too long. I know you haven't read the book but...do you know what these giants are? Like, are they giant humans or another creature entirely? It's a scary thought.

bigger than bigfoot.

Sounds like a working title for a movie script, or a new fast food burger.

I'm not sure on the biggest Bigfoot, but this image always intrigued me. If my memory is correct, those guys were apparently in the back of a pick up and they were chased down the road by a Bigfoot the size of their cut out. I think the pic was from the early to mid 70s.

That's one BIG cut out. Not sure if the finger placement is intentional though :lol:

I believe Melba Ketchum described seeing a 10 foot tall sasquatch, measured against the height of a caravan/ trailer.

How lucky is that? To have seen a ten footer and get to study pieces from them. Good for her she is really in the thick of them, I try and try but can't seem to turn up anything. Has Meldrum ever personally witnessed a Bigfoot?

I speak under correction, but I understand that he saw the shadow of one on his tent, and heard it (the creature, not the shadow!!). This is what started his interest in the subject in the first place, if I've got my facts right.

Do people realise how big 10 foot is. I would think for this creature to be real 6-7 foot would be Max to allow them to stay hidden. 10 feet is just ridiculous in my opinion.

Hi BA.

Have you ever seen Henner Fahrenbach's work on the morphology of sasquatch? He is a biologist, one of only a handful of professional scientists to date who have been prepared to risk their reputation by publishing on the phenomena. Google his report, and you'll see an analysis of height ranges from both sightings and from a footlength: height formula. It is interesting reading, and if nothing else, it informs the conversation.

I'm sure exageration is common among witnesses. Not saying it's always intentional, just perhaps the shock of the moment. It can have that effect on a person. There are reports from all over the world of giant skeletons found....some said to represent a 11' + person. Just google "giants" and you'll have a months worth of reading...a lot of interesting stuff.

That sighting took place just outside of Sycamore Flats campground in the Sand Gabriel mountains. The 3 witnesses went on to form the Angeles Sasquatch Association and were active through the 70's & early 80's.

I am glad someone found and posted the pic of the cardboard BF. I have always been struck by that pic, though honestly have felt it a bit outlandish, sizewise. BUT people see what they see.
I think it is honestly very easy to over or underestimate size from a distance - look at all the sightings of large birds that get turned into GIGANTIC birds by witnesses (yes, I am very much skeptical of giant bird reports). The fact that those guys were in the back of a vehicle may have contributed to overestimating height (even though it seems like they would more easily underestimate due to their being higher off the ground).
Even using landmarks as a height guide has its issues, IMO. Memory and perspective can both be problems. Heights above 8-9 ft push believability for me (but hey, I am pretty obviously in the "closer to human" camp, so such inhuman heights would be pushing it). So that is something that we must reconcile...Easy to see why Hall and others went down the "true giant" road. I don't buy that reasoning, but I can see taking reports that don't fit the mold and claiming that they must be something else. If we can believe in multiple types of HBs in NA ( I find the idea of smaller ones local to the south appealing), then why not giants in the north?

I may believe in the possibility of the existence of relict populations of undiscovered hominoid creatures, but I didn't just fall off the turnip truck...

I don't think that what 'bigfootery' is searching for is Gigantopithecus, or even a descendant thereof...but I reserve the right to be wrong :)

If they are that big in the PNW they must be hiding up in those Sequoia's.

How can someone even guesstimate the height of BF when they see one? It is like wood knocking, a report always comes in with 'it was 7 feet tall and 300lbs' or something. Sure, an eyewitness could say something was big and tall, it was ugly or it smelled bad, but to estimate the height? Based on what? Oh, based on what they think the height should be because that is what they have heard or read in the past. I agree, if someone goes back to a spot and measures something the creature stood behind they could get a rough estimate. Or if their was a trackway, they could measure the stride and calculate some sort of general height, but just accepting someone saying 'it was 8 feet tall' is not an accurate measure and should not be regarded as such. Then using such a value for further calculations and applying them to the general BF population is not reliable either. I mean, isn't that why they put the tape measure height chart in stores, so people getting robbed can estimate how tall the guy who just robbed them was? And look at the debate over the PGF film and Patty's height, that height is all over the place.

Cheers
