    This creature has many names but the most well known is the Abominable Slowman. You may have come to know him as Yenti, The Great Bore, or Raksha (Sanskrit for demon) but do not get him confused with Bigfoot or Sasquatch. That is another beast that is under completely different studies for what he actually is. Why is the word "slowman" in his name? The Himalayas, the biggest mountain range in the world, is extremely cold with snow and ice all around. It makes for difficult walking, hence the name Slowman. It is hard to believe that this creature is partly human if it can survive such a cold, harsh climate, but the DNA sequence doesn't lie.
