    Sasquatch/ Bigfoot

    Hi, i was just wondering if there is a spanish equivalent or suitable translation for sasquatch/bigfoot?

    I was thinking of perhaps 'la pata grande' but that seems very literal and probably doesn't exist!

    Thanks,
    -Eloise-

    Most people in Spain have heard of "bigfoots" but never seen them I'm afraid. I don't know of any translation for any of them. May be a description of it.

    En España yo había oído "el Pies Grandes", siempre en plural, de hecho juraría que así se llamaba la película de Big Foot.

    El yeti/abominable hombre de las nieves es distinto al Pie Grande/sasquatch. El yeti es una criatura que vive en la cordillera del Himalaya (Nepal) y el Pie Grande es cosa de la mitología norteamericana y se ha visto en EE.UU. y Canadá.
