By now, it's clear to most Bigfooters that there is a significant scientific effort taking place that will finally help prove the existence of Bigfoot.
Last July, David Claerr, who writes for Yahoo! Contributor Network wrote an article titled "Bigfoot DNA Report Analysis 2011: Preliminary Results in Mitochondrial DNA Indicate an Astonishing Relationship Between Sasquatch and Humans." It's an interesting article that talked about the recent mtDNA findings and how it should be examined in the standard process of peer review.
In his latest article published on Yahoo! titled, "Bigfoot Bones: Sasquatch Skeleton Analyzed and Compared to Human," David positions himself accordingly in regards to the DNA study by constructing a visual 3D model of Sasquatch based on "current evidence both from still and video imagery as well as what may be the actual physical, skeletal remains that have been exhumed in a few rare instances." According to David, he had the privilege to view an actual "physical hominin skeletal remains of indeterminate origin that are in excess of 8 feet tall.":
As this article is being written, there are some significant scientific efforts that are expected to be published in the near future, particularly in the field of DNA sequencing, that will provide exceptional evidence to help verify the existence of Sasquatch, or Bigfoot as a living species of hominid. Preliminary reports suggest that they may be more closely related to humans than any of the other "great apes" or higher primates, such as chimpanzees, bonobos, gorillas or orangutans, perhaps even related to or within the direct lineage that resulted in modern humans.
The purpose of this essay is to lay a groundwork for analysis of the structural anatomy, based on current evidence both from still and video imagery as well as what may be the actual physical, skeletal remains that have been exhumed in a few rare instances. (The important images accompanying this article can be enlarged by selecting them by the numbers and then clicking directly on the image.) In the course of both my independent and collaborative research of the Sasquatch, or Bigfoot, I have had the very good fortune to have access to collected evidence that is not available to the general public, and that in some cases, is either copyright protected or, by request, kept confidential pending further verification. I have been able to perform analysis and biometric measurements of cast prints of hands and feet as well as photometric measurements of skeletal remains of images from still and video footage. In addition, in my travels, I have been able to view physical hominin skeletal remains of indeterminate origin that are in excess of 8 feet tall.
Here's an image of the 3D skeletal model of Bigfoot compared to a human by Dave:
As a visual presentation to aggregate the findings of this research, I have constructed 3d models based on the measurements of skeletal proportions, individual bone lengths, and the angles and incidences of bone joints and linkage. (Note that the images are copyright protected and may not be reproduced online or in print without express permission.) The comparisons in the four images above are of a 5'7" human to an 8" Sasquatch
From a strictly scientific viewpoint, these 3D reconstructions are hypothetical until an actual type specimen is ether verified from existing remains or from a newly discovered specimen. However, I do believe they are generally accurate, and future research will likely either confirm, supplant, or refine in the structural details. Since this article is intended for the general public, the following observations are a general summation of my research.
A Sasquatch or Bigfoot apparently has a similar bone structure to humans. The main differences are in the proportions. The Sasquatch is much larger and more robust than the average human. The skeletal frame is also both wider and deeper than the human, by proportion. Individual bones have proportionately wider ends at the joints, and a larger diameter per length. The bone wall thickness is also likely greater in proportion to that of humans. Some other notable differences, reported by innumerable eyewitnesses, are the apparent length of the arms, the high set of the shoulders, short neck and the coned cranium or skull.
