Skunk Ape Hypothesis Revealed

Skunk Ape is Bigfoot on vacation.

Bigfoot a/k/a Sasquatchis a creature that has been sighted in Northern US (most recently outside Ridgway, Pennsylvania) and Canada.   Sightings are well documented, but often disputed.  You can read more here.  Take a look at a picture of him (or her).

Skunk Ape a/k/a Florida Skunk Ape or Stink Ape or Swamp Monkeyis a creature that has been sighted mostly in South Florida, but also in North Florida, Georgia, Louisiana and all the way out in Simi Valley, California.  Skunk Ape sightings are less documented, but similarly disputed.  You can read more here.  Whenever we go fishing in the everglades or take a nature hike or drive down Tamiami Trail (41) we are on the look out for the elusive creature.  It is reported that he has a distinctive stench.  We have yet to see him or smell him.  When we do, I can only hope we have a camera ready.  Take a look at a picture that someone else took:

There are other theories, such as Bigfoot and Skunk Ape are cousins, but in our house we are convinced that the Skunk Ape is Bigfoot on vacation!

You heard it here first!



  1. I have never heard of the “Stink Ape”. I am thinking that most of these “sighting” involve alcohol.

    Nice theory though!

  2. Looks kinda like Cousin It on stilts. I have never heard of this before and I’ve been hiking all over Florida. Perhaps the skunk smell that I have happened upon in the past was not the hiker before me, but this creature.
