Alaska!? as far as I'm concered there have been no sightings in there and they litteraly have to share territory with the polar bears.
There are supposedly many caves in the Himilayas. Most are unexplored. It is theorized that there could be a source of water, geothermal heat, and possibly cave fish and rodents a Yeti could live on.
There have also been sightings of Yeti supposedly eating leaves of a Rhododendrum bush and rock moss. I have never heard of a Yeti attacking Mountain Goats but it could eat those as well if it were a Omnivore although the teeth of Gigantopithicus suggested it was a herbivore.

I must admit that Mothman article gave me the creeps. Wasn't there a movie based on it!?
Heres an interesting picture. Supposedly a ship caught the corpse of a rotten pleiosaurus, but because the smell was so foul they ended up dumping it back in the ocean, so it could not be studied, but several pictures where taken.
The corpse was a rotten shark (most likely a basking shark). The tissue analysis proved it. You can find a good article about the "pseudoplesiosaur" here: Sea-Monster or Shark: An Alleged Plesiosaur Carcass
I think there are enough scientific explanations why Nessie (as a plesiosaur) cannot exist in Loch Ness today. Interestingly, Nessie became popular in 1933, shortly after the release of the movie "King Kong". In this movie you could see a fight between T-Rex and a Plesiosaur.
And the most famous photo (allegedly taken in 1934 by Dr. Robert Kenneth Wilson) boosted the media hype.
(proven fake in 1994)
In my opinion the Yeti is what the name suggests: a bear (from Tibetan yeh-teh, meaning rock bear).
But show me at least one corpse of a Yeti and I may reconsider my opinion. Even if they weren't bears they would have to die from time to time, right?

Well, what sucks about having no evidence of it not existing is that if it is an ape as suggested, it might bury its dead, or get rid of them other ways. If they do exist, we'll find out once Tibet/ The Himalayas melt.
Im Not Convinced That it isnt a pleiosaurus although that was quite an interesting read. It Looks alot more like a dinosaur than a shark to me, and nobodys ever gotten a Skin sample from a pleiosaurus before so for all we know it could have similiar DNA to a shark.
Plesiosaurs belonged to the (marine) reptiles, not to the sharks. And what they found was shark tissue, not reptile tissue.
The problem is that you can hardly prove the non-existence of something. People see what they want to see and what they believe in. The human brain can be duped so easily.
As For the whole Bigfoot Family Theory, there have been some accounts that credify it:
Kidnapping The story of Albert Ostman, a 64-year-old retired lumberman from British Columbia, went public in 1957 with a tale he had kept to himself since 1924, for fear of being ridiculed. Ostman's "sleeping-bag snatch" remains the most elaborately detailed account of Bigfoot contact : a first-person account of abduction. While on a camping trip near Vancouver Island, Ostman found that something had disturbed his supplies and food on two nights in a row. A Native American trail guide had warned him about the presence of local Bigfoot when Ostman set up his camp, and this was the first time Ostman had ever heard of the creatures, but he didn't think they could be the culprits messing with his gear. Then one night Ostman was shaken awake to find himself being indelicately carried away inside his sleeping bag. The opening of the sleeping bag was held shut, and Ostman had no choice but to be dragged along the forest ground for what he estimated to be 25 miles, nearly suffocating. After what seemed like a three-hour ordeal, he was thrown to the ground in a heap, and emerged to find himself in the company of four Bigfoot. Ostman described them as a family, with a father and a mother and their pair of offspring, one male and one female. He indicated that the adult male, his kidnapper, was over eight feet tall and powerfully built, covered in dark hair all over. The children, though smaller, were still about seven feet tall. Ostman said the Bigfoot chattered amongst themselves in a seemingly intelligent language, and although they did not hurt or threaten him, they were determined not to let him leave. Their lair was inside a small valley enclosed by cliffs, and the adult male stood guard at the only apparent entry passage. Ostman suggested that he may have been selected as a prospective mate for the young female. Ostman claimed that he was held captive for a period of six days. In that time he formed a tentative bond with the younger male, who became fond of sampling Ostman's snuff. That gave Ostman an idea. He offered his snuff to the adult male, which impulsively dumped the entire container into his mouth. The tobacco rush incapacitated the big Sasquatch in short order, making him writhe on the ground in overwhelming discomfort. Ostman seized the opportunity to escape, and never told anyone his fantastic tale until three decades later, when it seemed the world might be ready to listen.
Hard to disprove his story. But it is just that - a story from an old man. You can either believe it or not.
On the other hand, not so long ago defaced people were outcasts of society. They had to live on their own. Maybe sightings of people with hypertrichosis (Hypertrichosis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) also inspired the legends about "animal" humans, especially the werewolf myth.
