Badge, maybe I'm misunderstanding but what makes you think that BF could drop to all fours and run away if they are bipedal?
Good question. Current thought is that it appears to be unlikely that the P-G Bigfoot has descended from Gigantopithecus, as some might have thought
(pure conjecture, mostly):
Note the image above of G. Blacki. (this is also a guess, b/c all we have is the Jawbone and some teeth, that I'm aware. LOL)
What I was trying to get at is the lack of a 'wild', or reactionary, or quick reflexive movement that is seen in other large animals that give
subtle cues as to its 'realness'.
There is one shot in the PG film where it is suggested because you can see the gluteal fold from one frame to another, making it look like he dropped
to all fours, going over slight rise, but it is disputed.
Another cue is the way a horse will shake his skin, 'the quivers', which is due to fascial musculature. This is also sometimes seen in large
animals, and in addition to the lack of breast sway when the creature turns, there is no evidence of this, though the resolution might not be good
enough to show it.
Again, I'm just wildly conjecturing, looking for something like that which is subtle, but distinct.
However the relatively small size of the head just struck me when someone over on the BF forums mentioned that.
Bear in mind that the image size of the PG BF is onlly 1.5-1.6mm on the actual film stock. So many of the 'effects' we think we see are somewhat
indistinguishable from artifact due to various enlargements. In fact when they transfered the film to a different process they discovered that someone
had apparently drawn in a hand on the end of the trailing right arm. So it's difficult to gather much detail from that footage.
