The Arizona Bigfoot Face Database

See also

In part 1 of this series we discussed the events leading up to the creation of the Arizona Bigfoot Database, and how it can be used to identify squatch-blobs, Pareidolia, optical illusions, hoaxes and of course, the real thing. Basically, we let the categories sort themselves out. Instead of disqualifying a face photo due to its characteristics such as in or out of focus, personal biases of what we think a Bigfoot should look like, or prejudices of a particular researcher or group of researchers. We let them sort themselves out by repeat or matching faces from different times or places. With each match, the face moves up a notch on the credibility scale.

Trying to get this point across to the public has been a real challenge. Most want a pristine, perfectly framed and lighted photo so that they can pronounce it as being too good and declare it a hoax. It works the other way too. If it is not perfect then it is not convincing, and therefore is a squatch-blob and subject to rejection. That is the beauty of a face database. It is nearly impossible for the same face to appear twice or three times in different videos. However, there has to be faces to compare so all the Paridolia, optical illusions, hoaxes, squatch blobs and the real thing cannot be ignored or discounted.

As the number of matches continues to grow, we start getting insight as to how many real Bigfoot are in what areas. We start to see how many in each gender (if you can tell them apart from different camera angles). We start getting data on their social structure, as to whether or not they live in clans or as individuals. In long term studies it might be possible to watch a young Sasquatch grow, and get an idea as to their birth rates and longevity. It might also be possible to start tracking migrations, or determine they stay in the same basic areas.

The possibility of a National Bigfoot Database has been proposed. However, there was not much enthusiasm was shown as to sharing photos with various groups. There is a great fear of copyright violation or someone else cashing in on your photos. In consequence, it is proposed that each group establishes their own database on a copyright host, and provide other Bigfoot organizations a link so that the faces may be shared without proper accreditations. MogollonMonster.com’s Arizona’s Bigfoot face database is available for anyone to share.
