Let's discuss the Bigfoot phenomenon. If this creature exists (which I believe it did if it no longer does), then they've remained some of the most elusive beings to ever roam this great Earth. A fugitive on the FBI's Most Wanted Fugitives list can learn a thing or two from the legendary Sasquatch! Some speculate there is a connection with the now extinct hominid, Gigantopithecus, who roamed Asia. I'll post the famous film reel of the alleged female Bigfoot specimen discovered walking in Northern California.

Here we can see an ape-like gait and physiology in "Patty" complete with breasts.

Sasquatch Genome Project
In 2012, Dr. Melba Ketchum and her research team published evidence (see: Novel North American Hominins, Next Generation Sequencing of Three Whole Genomes and Associated Studies) of 111 samples of blood, hair and tissue specimens believed to belong to elusive hominid Sasquatch. The DNA evidence suggests that we are dealing with a related subspecies, hybridized: "[o]f the 16 [mtDNA] haplotypes, most were European or Middle Eastern in origin. African and American Indian haplotypes were also observed." This could make sense as Sasquatch probably snatched unsuspecting women from various populations in order to increase its own numbers.
In 2013, ZooBank received and accepted the scientific nomenclature proposed by Dr. Ketchum et al for the Sasquatch hominid, labeling it Homo sapiens cognatus.

WHAT ARE SOME POSSIBLE BIGFOOT GENETIC TRAITS?
Gigantism / Acromegaly
The U.S. National Library of Medicine defines Gigantism as 'an abnormal growth due to an excess of growth hormone (GH) during childhood.' And Acromegaly when the GH has stopped.


Hypertrichosis
Hypertrichosis (archaic: 'Werewolf syndrome') is characterized as an abnormal amount of hair growth over the body.


Let me know your thoughts. Do you think Bigfoot is more simian than human? Or are they merely another human-like subspecies (race) with a set of traits which we tend to refer to as 'genetic diseases' or disorders? Think: Sub-Saharan Africans and Sickle Cell Anemia, a genetic disease that provides protection against Malaria.
