  2. The real Wild Man of Borneo…

    The Batutut or Ujit or Người rừng, sometimes also known as “forest people”, is a proposed hominid cryptid, reputedly similar to the bigfoot, thought to inhabit the Vũ Quang nature reserve and other wilderness areas of Vietnam, Laos and northern Borneo….
    … a hominid similar to the Meganthropus lives there (instead, cryptozoologist Loren Coleman believes that the Batutut are a surviving population of Homo erectus or Neanderthal). Mackinnon’s 1975 book In Search Of The Red Ape describes his experiences and findings. A 1947 sighting by a French colonist refers to the animal as a L’Homme Sauvage (wild man).
    It is described as being approximately 1.8 m (6 ft) tall and covered with hair except in the knees, the soles of the feet, the hands, and the face. The hair ranges in color from gray to brown to black. The creature walks on two legs and has been reported both solitary and moving in small groups. The creature is most often sighted foraging for food from fruits and leaves to langers and even flying foxes.
    In Borneo, witnesses describe it as four feet tall and very aggressive, occasionally killing humans and tearing out their livers.
