Meaning of ABOMINABLE SNOWMAN in English


Tibetan Yeti

Mythical monster believed to inhabit the Himalayas near the snow line.

The Yeti is thought to resemble an oversized man covered with shaggy fur. Reported sightings are rare; evidence of its existence consists largely of unusual footprints left in the snow, probably the tracks of bears. At certain gaits, bears place the hindfoot partly over the imprint of the forefoot, thus creating tracks that resemble the footprints of a very large primate heading in the opposite direction.
