The Many Faces Of The Yeti

Part of the confusion that is generated by the Western world in trying to understand the Yeti is the fact that "Yeti" is a catch-all phrase we have been left with to refer to some of the creatures that inhabit the Himalayas.

Let's take a look at some of the other names used to describe the creatures.

Meh-Teh: Said to be  "...the meanest beast in the Himalayas."  When people speak of the Abominable Snowman, the Meh-Teh is the one they may be talking about. It is said to walk on two legs, have a pointed head, and either large square teeth or perhaps long fangs. The color can be brown, gray, red, black or white. Dr. John Napier said that according to stories he heard, the hair below the knee of the creature was often a different color from the rest of the body - a characteristic also mentioned in some bigfoot reports. Ivan T. Sanderson actually included the Meh-Teh in his list of primitive creatures. He reported it as eating plants, small animals, insects, and young birds. Sherpa feels the Meh-Teh attacks those who wander too far into its territory.

Duz-Teh: This is said to look like a bear and is usually described as being 6 to 8 feet tall. Sometimes it walks on all fours. Mainly a plant eater but has been accused of killing animals. Now in the native language, Dzu is said to mean 'cattle" and Teh to mean Bear. "cattle bear". The natives generally use this name to describe the HIMALAYAN BROWN BEAR. So, no wonder samples examined may come up as "BEAR"?


Teh-Ima: This is the smallest of the three types of Yeti. It is said to be only about 4 to 5 ft tall with tracks about 4 inches long. This one is said to be found only in the lower mountain regions. Some researchers think that this creature may be a monkey, similar to the Pyar-them monkey of neighboring regions of Sikkim, Bhutan, and southeast Tibet. Pyar-them means "little man".

While many researchers end their lists of possible types of Yeti at the above three, I would like to add a fourth.






Metoh-Kangmi:  This is the name that Sherpas gave to a creature. Mehtoh means "man bear" and Kangmi means "snowman" -- therefore, a wildman of the snows. This is said to be a large hair- covered creature with a horrible temper. There is a story of Norwegian climbers who were attacked by such a creature, knocking a man down and tearing at him. The others were able to drive it away. When they first saw this "ugly, apelike" creature it was making strange, whistling sounds. This sounds like but yet a little different from the other three previously described, Perhaps there are more?
