Does The Yeti Actually Exist?
You can share some fun facts about the yeti with your children to make this a more lively activity. This shaggy ape-like man can appear scary but it’s usually depicted in TV shows and movies as someone who minds their own business.
The yeti is a character that can trace its origins to the mountains of Nepal where the people live 12,000 feet above the ground. Though they’re thought to be dangerous figures the legends around them seem to have been created to warn children not to wander away from their communities.
However, despite all the mystery, the evidence seems to suggest that the yeti is no more than a type of bear living in extremely cold conditions.
