Cryptomundo: Ucumar Zapai
There are a lot of people around the province of Salta, Argentina who are annoyed that they are not being taken seriously when they say they are having real problems with a biped known as the Ucumar. You could call the Ucumar the Andean version of sasquatch or an Andean Yeti.
Aside from Argentina this beast has been reported in other countries in the Andean Range including, Bolivia, Peru and Chile. It is also known as the Ukamar-zupai and ranges in colour from reddish-brown to black. Its footprints are positively huge at 17 inches in length. No bear on this planet leaves tracks that size.
Two ranchers in the vicinity of Cerro El Creston, some 40 kilometers west of San Jose de Metan, hunted down a strange creature of humanoid appearance, but with unusually large and sharp incisors. The similarity between this specimen and local tales of the mythic “Ucumar” – the manlike figure covered in short black hair – has renewed the debate in Salta over the existence of the local “yeti”.
Marcelo Choque, a forensic veterinarian for the Provincial Police under the Environmental Division of the service, was startled to see the photographs of the strange specimen’s skull, shot by a rancher in the heights of Cerro El Creston in Metán. “I never saw anything like it. It’s clearly an anthropomorphic figure, but I can’t tell you the species. And I could much less explain the exaggerated size of its incisors, which give it a monstrous appearance.”
Wow Kandi are you hurt'in for thread material or what? I noticed it was your avatar when I finished reading the thread I had to look at it again
Argentina: Disappointment - Not An Ucumar Zupai
We regret to inform INEXPLICATA readers that the carcass of the alleged Ucumar Zupai shot in the heights of El Crestón may prove to be an out-of-place ape and not the legendary creature. However, we congratulate Salta law enforcement for taking the matter seriously and for setting out into the wilderness with alacrity.
