Giant "Homo Sapiens" Footprints Found on Rocks in India

Kerala News
‘Big Foot' walked across Kerala 30,000 years ago!
By Jehovah G, Palakkad (Kerala):

Giant footprints found at Karalmanna, a hilly village in Kerala's Palakkad District, are now being projected by anthropologists as belonging to homo sapiens that lived in the area about 30, 000 years ago.

According to the team of anthropologists headed by Krishna Swamy the footprints, which are two feet six inches in length, belonged to a giant human being weighing about 400 kilograms (880 pounds?) and having a height of about 17 feet.

“There are footprints on the rock, both small and big. All these footprints are in the shape of human feet but bigger in size,” said Chandran, an awed local resident.

Krishna Swamy,says the height of the cave in which the giant creature lived was 50 meters, and the creature must have used it to harbour animals that it killed for survival.

“The big footprints are similar to the footprints found in Australia and Texas in the United States. It is believed to be of a giant of 8 to 9 feet tall and around 360 kilograms in weight.

“The big footprints are similar to the footprints found in Australia and Texas in the United States. It is believed to be of a giant of 8 to 9 feet tall and around 360 kilograms in weight.

We have found a particular site where there was a huge footprint of 2.6 feet in length. According to the length it is believed to be of around 400 kilograms in weight and 17 feet in height.

The particular big footed creature about which we are speaking had arranged a set up inside the rock shelter to watch the movements of other animals. It must be a carnivorous, no doubt,” Swamy said.

According to the evidence available, the creature must have lived around 30,000 years ago. “We have found water, a river and valleys around the cave. According tothe evidence it must have lived around 30, 000 years ago,” Krishna Swamy added. “

The site is believed to have many items of geological and anthropological importance.

Was there an Indian Bigfoot? Yes, insists a team of amateur anthropologists led by S R Krishnaswamy. "We found four footprints of Bigfoot. In one, the footprint of the adult male measures 29 inches and the female size is 26 inches.

Even the young one's foot size is 8.5 inches," said Krishnaswamy on Monday. Going by the size of the footmarks, the anthropologists say Indian Bigfoot would have been far bigger than his Australian and Malaysian counterparts, estimated to be about 8 feet tall and weighing a hefty 350 kg.

"The Bigfoot found in these parts would be diametrically opposite to his counterparts in size, weight and eating habits. Stone tools that lie strewn around testify he used to prey on wild animals", said Krishnaswamy.

He added that while the male's impressions were found near the lofty spot from where he probably planned his hunting expeditions, the female and child impressions were found near the mouth of the shelter.

Eminent anthropologist L K Balaratnam said in Coimbatore that the site is virgin and could throw up unknown facts. Balaratnam, who along with his father co-authored India's first book on anthropology, 'Anthropology in India', said the finding should be "interesting."

He added that reports of Bigfoot sightings or impressions have not been reported from anywhere else in the country.

However, it's still too early to say for sure that there was indeed an Indian Bigfoot. Carbon dating and detailed scientific analyses will have to be carried out before it can be truly accepted that Bigfoot indeed once roamed parts of Kerala.

Till then, we'll just have to be content with mythological references to giants who straddled the earth and vaulted across oceans.
