  Recently, the so-called yeti of Asia and its
Mongolian counterpart have been hypothesized to be
very big indigenous bears, variations of the Siberian
brown. Still produces a very human-like and very large
pes print. Essentially, there's a lot of what one
_wants_ to see that is found, no matter what is there.
That's why a great deal of "cryptozoology" is not
considered a science. There _are_ self-styled
cryptozoologists who are very scientific and have
found spotted rabbits, largish forest antelopes, etc.
in the past 10 years who are quite respectable indeed.
People read "strange" and "unusual" into their
interests and are constantly looking for it without
finding it.

  Dinosaurs are horrible, terrible creatures! Even the
  fluffy ones, the snuggle-up-at-night-with ones. You think
  they're fun and sweet, but watch out for that stray tail
  spike! Down, gaston, down, boy! No, not on top of Momma!
