In 1938, Bill Tilman wrote a book and described Howard-Bury's footprints, but called the thing "metch-kangmi." "Metch" is not a word in the Tibetan language. Thus, through a mis-translation, the term "Abominable Snowman" was created.
Because of this name, most people think of something like a bigfoot(and usually white) when they think "Yeti" or they think of a literal snowman. Well, the Yeti definetly isn't a "snowman," and it most likely isn't a Bigfoot of the Himalayas, either.
Yes, that is coming from me. The Yeti is not an "Abominable Snowman." It is not a Bigfoot. I'm 99% sure it isn't any sort of "ape-man," either.
Well, actually, I have a little more.
