A Brown Yeti

'Yeti' or 'Abominable Snowman' is a supposed large primate-like creature reported to live in the Himalayas. The Western name is derived from the Tibetan yeh-teh (transliterated: gYa’ dred), “little man-like animal”; it is a false cognate with Old English geottan (or yettin in Modern English), an antiquated word for an orc or troll). Most mainstream scientists and experts consider current evidence of the Yeti’s existence to be unpersuasive, and the result of hoaxes, legend.
