Welcome to Cryptid Wiki
The wiki about cryptids, that anyone can edit.

Cryptids are monsters... except that cryptids could actually exist! When talking about Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster you're talking about something that could live right on this Earth right now! On Cryptid Wiki, we document all of the possible information you can get about cryptids and determine if they're real or not.

The Yowie , also known as Yayhoo, Youree, Hairy Man, or Yahoo is a fanged humanoid marsupial or great ape, featured in Aboriginal mythology along with Australian Raptors and Burrunjor. The Yowie is considered to be the Australian Bigfoot, and contain many primate like features, possibly indicating that it is an undiscovered species of great ape (Gigantopithecus) or prehistoric human. The Yowie is described as being one of the most aggressive Sasquatch species, and has been reported tearing heads off of kangaroos and dogs. It has been seen attacking humans as well. However, that is rare.

Like most Bigfoot species, it is theorized that the Yowie descends from an ancient ape called Gigantopithecus Blacki. While the Giganto-Bigfoot theory may be valid, it is highly unlikely that the Yowie descends from the same Asian ape, as creatures from Asia never made it to Australia due to sea depth and vice-versa, creatures from Australia never made it to Asia. This separation is marked by the Wallace Line. Another theory is that they may be living Homo erectus, the presence of which in prehistoric Australia is suspected but not proven; or a particularly primitive tribe.

As no placental terrestrial mammals are known to have naturally existed in Australia, some cryptozoologists theories that the yowie could be some form of bipedal marsupial, such as a descendant of the New Guinean Hulitherium.
