When the news about Janice Carter supposedly regularly feeding the Bigfoot Fox came out years ago, I posted the famous scene illustrating the event (painted by Igor Burtsev's daughter Lilya) and made an estimation of what the skull must look like on the inside based on how it had to fit on the outside. Against this I also had the reconstruction of the head and profile of a male Bigfoot as done by forensic artist and Bigfoot expert Harvey Pratt, which is also of much the same overall form.
Both conform very well to this very complete (and therefore more obviously authentic) skull of an "Early Homo sapiens" or Heidelberg man from Atapuerca, Spain and estimated to be 400000 years old : Click Here (external link)
And from the shape of the head there is very little wiggle room for error one way or the other. Homo heidelbergensis is the classification also for some fossils identified as coming from a Viking-age burial in Greenland by Mark Hall and Loren Coleman, and hence also estimated by them as the most likely forerunner to the more humalike Bigfoot reports of the Eastern United states.
Homo heidelbergensis is also often supposed to be the last common ancestor of modern Homo sapiens and the Neanderthaloids (Neanderthalers in Europe, but also Solo man in the orient and Kabe or Rhodesian man in Africa)
