A REALLY BIG Footprint...

...could even be a Sasquatch - Is it a footprint of Sasquatch?or an extraordinarily LARGE prehistoric person? An amateur archeologist found a huge fossil footprint on his Tennessee property that has made him a Bigfoot believer.

In WSMV.com, Dennis Ferrier quotes Harold Jackson as saying, "I don't know anything about archaeology?but if you look at it, it's a footprint. No animal footprint looks like that. Now, if it's a Native American, an Indian, then he was a big Indian. [The print] is about 11 inches wide and about 15 inches long?I don't know what kind of Bigfoot it is, but there's a Bigfoot out there somewhere."

Is the footprint from a male or female? Scientist can't tell from the footprint alone, but if the average person SAW whatever left it behind walking, even if they were too far away to identify the sex, they could probably answer that question just by seeing it walk. It turns out the human brains are extraordinarily good at deducing gender by observing just a few moves.

In LiveScience.com, Charles Q. Choi quotes neuroscientist Rick van der Zwan as saying, "Humans are acute observers of each other. We know a lot about each other at first glance. How we do that is an interesting question, especially as some people seem so good at it? But as soon as they move, instantaneously, you can tell that it's a person and perceive their nature. You can tell if it's a boy or a girl, young or old, angry or happy. You can discern all these qualities about their state, affect, and actions with no cues at all about what they look like?with no form at all, just motion."
