Ape Monsters: The Yowie of Australia!


The yowie is Australia’s Bigfoot, and is  common in Aboriginal Australian legends. First sighted in 1795, yowies are six-foot-plus tall, have wide, flat noses, and are covered in hair. Most descriptions list black or very dark brown hair. It is known in parts of Queensland as the quinkin and the joogabinna, as well as a host of other names. Although people have reported finding yowie footprints, the tracks are inconsistent in size and in number of toes.
