ON THE TRAIL OF THE ELUSIVE FLA. EVERGLADES APE-LIKE ENTITY

Postby CHAKA » Wed Jan 04, 2017 7:18 pm

In the 1970's before there was a name " Big Foot.. Skunk Ape " stamped on the Elusive ape-like people that lived back in the Everglades we thought they were some thing mixed up like an Indian and a Monkey of some kind. They left signs of small single palm fran sleeping shelters they built through out the heads/ tree islands. We also, found foot, hand and knee prints where they were digging the roots up from the paw paw tree. I wanted to know if any one else had real experiences or found signs like I spoke of in the Florida Everglades ? I am trying to find out if they survived over the last 40 plus years ago or are they gone. Steven.

Likely just ceased to reproduce, and slowly faded out of existence. However the campfire stories of the "skunkape" carried on through the years. Nothing but folklore. More than likely someone from a distance spotted a bear walking on its hind legs.

Yes they did survive, and became more civilised
Now days they don't like the swamps and have moved on to a new hammock called the projects
They have shaved the hair off and were gold chains
And they now want to be called rapper's
If you want to see one for yourself there will be a large female one being removed from the white house on the 19th of this month
You might want to go see because it is doubtful that the entity will survive because of poor parenting skills

Hope this helps Steve

The one you're referring to isn't a female ..... it's a T-male. Remember where you heard it first. :wink:

This does explain the knuckle prints in the mud and the smell.

Back in 1962, I heard about a similar beast in the Everglades, only he was called "Seminole Sam." Never saw him, but they said he/it smelled really bad. Scared a lot of Tenderfoot Scouts in Troop 189.

Krahammer, what area in the Everglades were you at ? It was not intill 1965 that I started going out into the Glades with my father hunting, so I don't know about " Seminole Sam " . Do you know any more about him ? Your story pre-dates my story. We did not have a name for what ever was living in our area in conservation area 3A. Thanks for any info.

I grew up in Broward and camped with my scout troop in area 3, and at the old scout camp that used to be on the far western end of Griffin Road. Gene Albury and Mr. Stanton, whose first name I don't recall, were scoutmasters who told us. Gene Albury was game warden with the old Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission.

I grew up in davie
You guys bring up the boy scout camp on boy scout road over by the old landfill ,the camp is still there They just rehab the place
Millions of dollars was spent to cut down all the trees and make it look like a desert. It was a really cool place back in the day
Now I remember when I was a kid in the 70s the story was that the skunk ape, tour the door off of a pickup truck over there
I never heard of Seminole Sam
But directly across the street from the boy scout camp is the Seminole nudists club . It's has been there as long as the camp

Now i am thinking that the skunk ape was probably some hairy nude guy high on drugs ripping the doors off trucks

:lol: :lol: :lol: Seminole Sam was a freak!

This is making sense of how the " Elusive people of the Everglades " became Folklore. If in 1962 there was a " Seminole Sam " lurking in the swamps ready to pounce on any lone scout who may venture off... that story may have been told around the camp fires for a good 10 years intil the name changed to the "Skunk Ape " when a scout tried to catch a little skunk and came back with a Big story to tell the other boy's how he got away from this giant beast that grabed him and he fight it off with his bare hands or a story similar to that. This maybe how the Skunk Ape became the " The beast of the swamps " Good job guys ! I think we are figuring this out. Steven

Nowadays Trail Lakes Campground located in Big Cypress Swamp on US 41 near Ochopee Fl is known as Skunkape Headquarters with a researcher named David in charge.
