Researchers behind a documentary series about the legendary Bigfoot believe they have thermal camera footage of the mysterious ape-man watching them warily
A team of documentary filmmakers claim to have video footage of Bigfoot peering intently from behind a tree.
The researchers, who were making a series about the legendary ape-man, used a thermal camera and the human or ape-like figure seen in the film is a thermal signature.
Commenters discussing the video on a Reddit Bigfoot group say it couldn’t be a human prankster in a “gorilla suit” because it wouldn’t be recorded on an infrared camera.
A suit of the kind critics say is used in some faked videos would tend to obscure the wearer’s heat signature.
As reported by the Daily Star, the video was shot for Travel Channel’s Expedition Bigfoot. The wildly popular series follows a team of researchers as they attempt to find solid evidence for the American Yeti.
The team is led by Mireya Mayor, a renowned anthropologist and wildlife correspondent who discovered a previously unknown lemur species from Madagascar and has co-authored several scientific papers on lemur species.
“Throughout my career, several Bigfoot researchers have approached me about questions they had about the footprints they had found, but I felt this was an opportunity for scientific investigation. appropriate on the subject of Bigfoot,” she said.
“For me,” added Mireya, “it was a very natural choice. What I really liked about the principle of this expedition is that it would be a team of experts with skills and very different backgrounds working together in a particular hotspot.
“It was a unique opportunity and approach to finding Bigfoot that I had never seen before.”
Fellow cryptozoologists Russell Acord, Bryce Johnson, and Ronny LeBlanc accompany Mireya in search of a mysterious creature.
Reactions to the images were mixed.
One Redditor said, “With thermal, if you’re wearing a suit, you can tell. It would be hard enough for poor Sasquatch researchers to fool a 9-foot creature that has proper thermal readings, and often leaves footprints with a mid-tarsal rupture and correct anatomy.”
In response, another user said, “Seems like a hoax to me. There are only 3 videos I’ve ever seen that I think might be real.
“The best is Patterson’s film. I’ve seen so much ‘evidence’ in pictures and video and heard so many stories. It’s a shame there are so many hoaxes.”

Last month, we shared a video that two Bigfoot enthusiasts claim shows the ape-man running through the trees.
The men, who run an account called @ cryptiduniversity on Tiktok and have uploaded hundreds of videos to Bigfoot, can be heard talking to each other in the clip as the camera moves to face the car’s windshield.
On the track past a fallen tree is seen. The video posted to the couple’s account reads, “Notice the tree trying to block the road? Has the top of the tree been broken off?”
As the car slowly moves around the fallen tree, the camera pans towards the driver.
The men believe Bigfoot is spotted there in the background, from the driver’s side window.
