The Yetis or Abominable Snowmen are anthropoid or pongid cryptids said to inhabit the Himalayan region of Nepal, Sikkim, Bhutan and other nearby South Asia countries. The names Yeti and Meh-Teh are commonly used by the people indigenous to the region, and are part of their history and legends of the region. Yetis remain one of the most famous creatures of cryptozoology. The Yetis may be a rock ape similar to Gigantopithecus. They leave tracks in snow and mud.
A number of prints were discovered in snow and ice by Eric Shipton, a distinguished British Himalayan mountaineer, along with Michael Ward, the doctor on their 1951 Mt. Everest expedition. Shipton and Ward photographed the prints on November 8, 1951, in the Gauri Sankar Range, Himalayas. This plaster cast, constructed from the photograph, shows an opposable big toe (hallax) common to all apes.
