The human being started their walking 5 millions years ago. Since the beginning, probably in West Africa, the diferents hominids were distributed around the world. We studied that we had an evolution that ended with the Homo Sapiens, but, the question is: What could be happen if, as the Celacanto, one of our ancestor had survived? Here we are going to analyze three cases of differents places around the world. Sasquatch: Has its origin in North America. Sasquacht mean “The Man of the Forest” in the language of the Canadian first setters. In 1811 we have the first testimony, when they discovered footprints in the snow. The interest in Sasquatch  was accelerated in the 50’s, after some alleged photos. The most spectacular chase was in 1924, but we knew about it in 1957: Albert Osman was “kidnapped” by a sasquacht family. He escaped because one of the sasquatch ate a can of snuff and became ill. The cryptozoologist believe that the sasquacht could be a Gigantopithecus and they can reach about the 3 meters and 300 kilos. Someone of them believe that it could be Neanderthals. The last notice that we had about the sasquacht was the analysis of any samples collected in North América. Thanks of these analysis we know that the sasquacht is a hybrid, because we have got human traces in the mitochondrial DNA. This it is possible maybe because the sample is contaminated or maybe long time ago we had a cross between sasquacht and humans, this is so important because, if we have a common ancestor we can’t hunt the sasquacht. Andara’s Bear: is a female who lives in the Picos de Europa (Spain). This female disappear when the winter arrives and appears in spring. The first tales come from 19th. Her body is similar to the Neanderthals, but we haven’t got any reminder.  We thought that we are talking about a Neanderthal because the description talks about a female with a very wide thorax, a projecting face and a poorly developed chin. Almas: in mongol mean “wild man”. We can find them in Mongolia, Caucasus and Pamir mountains. We are talking about a bipedal being of 1.95 meters, a hairy body and human face. In 1430 Hans Schiltberger pick up some histories about these creature during its captivity with the Mongol King. Another chase is from 1850, when a female, later called Zana, was captured and “domesticated”. The most spectacular case was from 1941, during the Second World War. A wild and frightened male was captured by the sovietic army. After some interrogatories, and as he couldn’t speak, they decided to shoot him under accusation of be a german spy.
