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.

Description

The Yowie is described to be around 7 to 9 feet tall, with a large red mouth and talon-like claws according to Aborginal legends. It is also noted that the Yowie contained two large fang-like canines which distinguish the Yowie from other Bigfoot species. It usually has brown or reddish fur.

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 supected but not proven; or a particularly primitive uncontacted tribe.

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