Grade 2 Nature and Science (Stories)
Some people call him Bigfoot. Some people        call        him Sasquatch. Many people claim they have spotted him,       but       no one knows for sure if he is real.

So who      or      what is this mysterious Bigfoot?

Bigfoot is a tall, hairy creature. He is 6-10        feet        tall. He weighs up to 500 pounds and sort of         looks         like an ape. Many people think he lives in forests or mountains          around          the world. He is an omnivore. That means he        eats        both plants and animals.

Even though he is big, he does not       eat       people. However, he may try to scare people away from his home. Bigfoot may         throw         rocks to scare people away. He wants to protect his home and family. Of course, no one has ever        seen        him to know if this is true.

In the 1950s, a construction worker saw a large             footprint             on his construction site. He said the        foot        must have come from a creature named Bigfoot. That's how Bigfoot got its name. However, in other places Bigfoot is called Sasquatch. Some countries        call        him a Yeti.

People around the         world         have searched for Bigfoot. Some have even taken pictures. However, the pictures are usually blurry. They do not prove that Bigfoot          exists         . Maybe he does, maybe he doesn't. We'll probably never know.
