A still from a 1977 film reportedly shows a Bigfoot in the hills of northern California: The creatures also go by the name "Sasquatch," which means "wild man of the woods" in a Native American language. The shaggy, mythical creature -- half ape, half human -- is believed to be powerfully built, reach heights of up to 2.5 meters (over 8 feet) and weigh up to 230 kilograms (500 pounds), and it allegedly spends its time skulking through the forests of North America.
