Different communities like scientists, writers... regard the Yeti's existence as a hoax, a legend or a misidentification of know species. The Yeti can be considered a Himalayan version of the Loch Ness monster. In Nepal, the Yeti is known not as a creature, but as a shamanist god. The Yeti is encountered only in a trance state. The Yeti has become a cultural icon, appearing in movies, books and video games. The Yeti creature is usually depicted as the scary "Abominable Snowman", but is occasionally shown as being misunderstood or used as comic relief. [Wikipedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yeti]|
