That's true, many new species are discovered by science each year.
The difference though, is these new species are often closely related to existing and known species.
Occasionally, a completely new species will be discovered, but this is rare.
More often than not, the 'new species' is just a variation of a known species, differing only in specific attributes like colour, markings, or size
etc...while still being very close in physiology and appearance to other genus of species.
With Bigfoot, there really is no close analogue that could have been easily overlooked, as would be the case with say a newt, that's only different
from other newts in a small and superficial way, like slight colour variation or something like that...a bigfoot may be likened to a great ape, or
gorilla but considering there are no great apes in the US outside of zoos, it's not like a bigfoot will have been missed by science just because
it's slightly different from a Silverback or Orang-utan..there's nothing else like the description of a bigfoot out there, for it to be overlooked
by thinking it was an ape for example.
