Many believe the Yeti is just another name for Bigfoot, but nothing could be further from the truth. Said to live at higher elevations, the Yeti is known to be extremely violent and while Bigfoot is believed to be a biological flesh and blood creature, many native cultures in the Himalayas believe the Yeti is a supernatural entity – the embodiment of the all-powerful local mountain gods. The Yeti had been thought to live in the Himalayas and the Ural Mountains, but incredible new evidence suggests that it may also reside in America. Join a team of investigators and cryptozoologists as they reveal that this dangerous and elusive creature is not only real, but could be guarding the gateways to an otherworldly realm.
