Orange Pendek Sighted in Indonesia
Explorer Adam Davies, via Loren Coleman and Cryptomundo, is reporting that his team has sighted the elusive orang pendek, an upright-walking ape-like creature (possibly a relative of the Asian Yeti and North American Sasquatch), in the jungles of Sumatra. "I heard a large animal moving towards us," Davies writes. "Subsequently the creature was then sighted by team member Dave Archer and Sahar Didmus, a forest ranger. Dave describes the OP [orang pendek] as looking almost chimpanzee-like." Tracks have been found as well as hair samples, which were taken for analysis. We'll keep you posted as more news comes in.
