The discovery location remains a closely guarded secret, but rumor has it that the Sasquatch was discovered somewhere in the Pacific Northwest region of the United states. The origin of Sasquatch has always been clouded in mystery- cultures around the world have described large, apelike creatures that walk upright like a human. The names "Bigfoot" and "Yeti" are synonymous with such creatures. Many believe that this animal may be a descendant of a large primate thought to have gone extinct over 10,000 years ago called Gigantopithecus blacki.
Sasquatch has been a common fixture in North American folklore for hundreds of years- but, until now, evidence of its existence has only been questionable tracks, grainy photos, or eyewitness accounts.
The Amarillo Zoo was chosen through a national lottery to be the first Zoo in the country to exhibit the Sasquatch. For one night only (Tuesday, April 1st, 2014 from 6:00-8:00pm) the Zoo will be honored to exhibit this 8' creature for guests to come see.
