In Search of the Sisimite

Dale Drinnon has a very good, and very long, new online post on the monstrous Sisimite, which he describes thus:

"The Sisimite is equally well known in Belize, Guatemala, Honduras and in parts of southern Mexico's tropical forests. The Sisimite or "guardian of the forest" is best described as a large, hairy gorilla or apelike creature; It has no verbal communication that is known and according to reports, is a rather malevolent or evil primate (unlike sasquatch but similar to the mythical African gorilla of old) who would kill humans of the same sex and abduct and rape those of the opposite sex, which is not unlike current behavior patterns of male orangutans (A male orangutan at Tanjung Putting Reserve in Indonesian Borneo once raped the female cook for Birute Galdikas on a banana tree stand during feeding time.)."

And here's the link to Dale's complete post.

I'll have to keep an eye out later this year. I will be in most of those countries. Perhaps I'll capture one and bring it back to the amazement of all. Not likely? Well, then settle for the tortures of cheap souvenirs.
