Hair Analysis - Part 2

Dr. Henner Fahrenbach analyzed over a dozen hair samples that could not be attributed to any commonly known North American animal but shared a common suite of distinguishing features.

Sample A: This was a dark reddish brown to black in color. It was wavy to slightly curly in parts and ranged from 3" to 15" in length. A cross-section of the hair showed it to be round to slightly flattened the entire length. The medulla was absent, with only a minimal fragmentary medulla in one region. The cuticle pigmentation showed an irregularly waved mosaic pattern. Scale margins were smooth to slightly wrinkled.  Most of these hairs showed that they were at the growth stage where they were ready to fall out on their own. A few of the strands had follicles attached. Split ends were evident on a few of them, giving them a brush-like tip, but most of the hairs had smooth, rounded worn tips. NONE SHOWED EVIDENCE OF BEING CUT.

Sample B: These hairs ranged in length from 2" to 5" and were reddish brown to blond in color. They were identical in anatomy to Sample A, except for a complete absence of medulla. All hairs had attached follicles. Again, NO INDICATION OF BEING CUT.

Dr. Fahrenbach said that these samples came from the same species but from two different individuals. One sample was a dark reddish brown which showed black to the naked eye. The other was a light reddish brown and had very worn ends.

Two sasquatches matching these colors had been observed within twenty minutes of the vicinity where the hair samples were found. None of the people gathering the hair samples matched hair colors or morphology.

The anatomy of the hair ruled out common mammals in the area. No feature absolutely ruled out an ID as human, although the lack of cut ends on relatively short hairs seemed to make a human source quite unlikely.

Hope these two posts have given those of you interested in hair samples a beginning in reading up on it.

  1. Regarding the two posts on presumed bigfoot hair strands (or maybe it's really fur strands), there's something that might make things even more complicated that I rarely see mentioned on this subject matter. And that is: From what part of the body do we think that strand came from? In other words, do the hair/fur strands from the head, face, neck, upper back, lower back, chest, belly, arms, etc etc, plus the guard "hairs" versus undercoat "hairs", all have the same characteristics? This is another reason we need that "type specimen" body presented to the anthropology/zoology/biology community for classification of everything about the bigfoot body. Not to mention the important species conservation efforts that follow.
