The respected naturalist and broadcaster thinks the legendary Yeti could really exist and be living in the Himalayan Mountains

David Attenborough believes that the Yeti or Abominable Snowman may be real.

The world-renowned naturalist and broadcaster says he thinks the creature of Himalayan legend which has a North American cousin known as Bigfoot or Sasquatch could be much more than a myth.

I believe the Abominable Snowman may be real. I think there may be something in that," said Attenborough, speaking today at a showcase of upcoming programmes on UKTV.

There are footprints that stretch for hundreds of miles and we know that in the 1930s a German fossil was found with these huge molars that were four or five times the size of human molars.

They had to be the molars of a large ape, one that was huge, about 10 or 12 feet tall. It was immense. And it is not impossible that it might exist. If you have walked the Himalayas there are these immense rhododrendron forests that go on for hundreds of square miles which could hold the Yeti."

Attenborough, who was addressing an audience at the Saatchi Gallery to promote a second series of Natural Curiosities on the Eden channel, explained why the existence of the beast had not been proven up until now: If there are some still alive and you walked near their habitat you can bet that these creatures may be aware of you, but you wouldnt be aware of them.
