10 November 2006 (New Straits Times) – In the words of Liz Price, “Oh no… not again…” I’m not even sure why I’m posting this, since this post has nothing to do with Southeast Asian Archaeology anymore. But since we’ve followed this story from a time when such a theory might have been plausible, we’ll just follow it out of morbid curiousity. My take? My money’s on a two-legged elephant…

Is it the footprint of Bigfoot or jumbo?

Loud noises and the breaking of branches at a rubber plantation in Kampung Batu 4, about three kilometres from the Kota Tinggi waterfall on Monday night, have fuelled interest again in the creature.

Marozan had ventured into the secondary jungle behind the kongsi with a group of youths to investigate the source of the disturbance.

“We found large footprints measuring about 45cm long. The pair of footprints had a stride of about a metre apart. This indicates that a large bi-pedal creature had moved around here. There are twigs and leaves broken off from trees from a height of more than two metres.”
