The Yeti or Abominable Snowman is an ape-like creature taller than an average human that is said to inhabit the Himalayan mountains in Nepal and Tibet. The name Yeti is used by the native people of the region, and is part of their history and mythology. Stories of the Yeti first emerged as a facet of Western popular culture in the 19th century.


In Nepal, some people believe in a legendary creature known as the Yeti. It lives high up on the glaciers of the Himalaya Mountains. Stories about this creature date back thousands of years. The legends say it can be seen only when it comes down from the high mountains to lower elevation and that it passes through the forests and into the villages where it surprises or scares people and sometimes kills a yak for food. Several climbers claim to have seen an unusual animal on their way up Mount Everest. A few have taken photographs of very large footprints in the snow, claiming they belong to the Yeti.


The name Yeti sounds unusual, but it has another name that many people will recognize: Abominable Snowman. Think of a big human-like animal covered in white hair, with huge canine teeth and very big footprints.


The scientific community generally regards the Yeti as a legend, because there is a lack of conclusive evidence, but it remains one of the most famous elusive creatures. Analysis of samples associated with claimed yetis found that thir DNA matched that of polar bears in Norway.
