Eye witnesses describe the creature as standing upright on two legs, erect or in a hunched over shortstop posture shifting it's weight from side-to-side ever so slightly as if it is going to spring into action at any moment. The North American Sasquatch is massive, and has been "primarily seen" in the Pacific Northwest, Alberta, British Columbia and Canada.
Witnesses have reported seeing the skin as a dull gray to dark gray color, but some reports indicate a lighter brown, pink, or even albino coloration have been seen and observed.
The North American Sasquatch has been seen in many variations just like us humans, although primarily described as a dark brown to black representation and hair (Not fur) almost wirelike with a sheen that repels water. Often witnesses have described the Sasquatch as shaking the water off its hair, similar to how a Newfoundland would emerging from the water.
The hair itself is 1-3" in length. While hair varies in color it has been reported that adult Sasquatch have grey tips very similar to that of an elderly ape. Unlike most primates, purported Sasquatch hair has been put under intense scrutiny and under microscopic examination reveals the hair is without a medulla unlike human hair.
Most Sasquatch eye witnesses we have spoken to, typically notice a sulphur smelling discharge or foul stench immolating from the creature or the area of which it was seen. This can be attributed to climate, and potentially Sulphur streams, Lava Tubes or even carcass rummaging for food such as a bear.
Head and Neck
The head is described as sitting squarely on the shoulders almost attached directly to the trapezius almost like that of a great ape. The head has a large sagittal crest in adult males and to a lesser extent in females. The brow ridge is also present similar to a great ape that creates an almost sunken eye indication.
The nose is flat and protrudes ridges toward the brow line and has also been described as hairless. The ridges are often mistaken for rinkles and many describe the face as an old catchers mitt or an elderly indian.
Trunk and Torso
While this varies from male to female the primary representation is a shoulder width of 3-6ft narrowing to a waste of the same proportion, while younger males are described more athletic or V-cut such as a fine tuned athlete. Females vary due to a variety of conditions including pregnancy and have been seen with protruding mammory glands such as the Roger Patterson film of 1967.
The legs also vary in size and width and length, but are primarily described as walking tree trunks. The muscular curve of the quadriceps, and calves may be present but covered by hair and due to the fleeting chance encounter eye witnesses typically have a tough time describing to us the lower extremities, and most are focused on the face, head and eyes.
The average of most prints we have verified are somewhere between 8" in adolescents to 25" at the upper edge of the spectrum, with most common somewhere between 11-18" long by 7-12" wide. While fanciful tales exist about giants, we have extensively researched this with museum curators and no one is able to produce giant bones including the Smithsonian.
Body Size and Weight
The average height reported is 6'-12' tall as adults, and an estimated weight between 600-1100lbs. While we are sure anomalies or adolescents exist we are stating what we have heard from countless eye witness encounters.

Does Sasquatch Live in Caves?
If Sasquatch is a flesh and blood creature, it may prefer the comfort of caves or Lava Tubes for various reasons:
While it is possible for Sasquatch to make it's nests and dens above ground with natural resources - it seems more plausible that if Sasquatch wanted to avoid detection and conserve energy it would use the natural rock formations of the earth for shelter accommodations.
Living above ground for any species is difficult, especially in the harsh climate of the mountains where temperatures in the Cascades, Rockies, and Sierra Nevada's can change over 50 degrees per season. It seems any intelligent creature would prefer the static nature of underground temperatures. While many caves are cold, in the Pacific Northwest, there are many sulfur caves made by natural hot springs. These exist in Oregon, Washington, Alaska and many other states, but provide a perfect habitat for a humid and warmer underground environment to survive harsh winters and cool nights. This also may explain the "Sulfur" smell that many eye witnesses describe with that deep sulfur odor. So is it possible Sasquatch would use a temperate lava cave or a sulfur cave near hot-springs to make its den - seems to make sense to us?
Many cave systems in the Pacific Northwest are extensive, some connect to others, and others are self contained, with many outlets for access, as well as deep ravines for hiding within the system. Are caves the perfect environment for Sasquatch to use as a fortress for avoiding detection and allowing them to freely come and go under researchers feet while enjoying a perfect habitat until they need to surface in the evening to foliage and gather resources?
