While this is impressive, there is something about the subject of the photo that smacks of me as being, an impressive hoax.
While I am not an expert in primate psychology, if this is indeed a relative of the hominid genus, and is anything like a primate in the wild I
sincerely doubt the person taking the photograph would have gotten that close without a fight or flight reaction from the beast.
In the wild, primates especially Mountain Gorillas from the Congo would have reacted violently if someone were to get that close. Diane Fossey's many
experiences with them, show's her surrounded by them, but she would have shown some very subservient behavior herself to get that close. I'm
doubting little old ladies, could have the whetherwithall back bone, and wild primate psychology to get that close, not mention upon a sudden stimuli
a real Mountain Gorilla in a similar situation would have mauled and possibly killed her.
I'm only drawing a comparison from the liklehood, of a random chance with a little old lady, and if this even acts like a wild primate, said little
old lady wouldn't have made it 5 feet after the initial flash.
Also one other thing, it looks like a very impressive animatronic, there is just something about that seems fabricated.
I really do want to believe in bigfoot, the only proof is finding their remains. Without a corpse, a person in the real world is just a missing
person. Without a corpse there is only speculation...
