Do you believe in Sasquatch? If you do, or even if you don't, I bet you didn't think it would look like this creature--dubbed the 'Oriental Yeti'--that was found in the woodlands of central China.

The Oriental Yeti was discovered by hunters in China's Sichuan province, and is a virtually hairless animal with four legs and a thick tail. Nowhere in the history of so-called Sasquatch sightings and documentation has a yeti been described this way. And 'Bigfoot expert' Loren Coleman confirms what we're all thinking: this thing isn't a yeti.

According to Coleman, the Oriental Yeti seems to be an "Asian palm or common civet,"--basically a cat--and it could have lost its hair due to a parasitic skin disease.
