FINDING BIGFOOT: Indonesia's Little Bigfoot

Animal Planet - Original Air Date: 2/17/2013

Matt, Cliff, Bobo, and Ranae head to Indonesia to track down the "orang pendek" -- a shorter (4' tall) version of sasquatch.  Ranae, the scientist, says that the existence of a four-foot-tall primate in food-filled rainforests seems much more likely than finding a giant ape in the Pacific Northwest.  They meet Adam Davies, a world-traveling cryptozoologist to help them look for the creature.  All of them then go to meet a local potato farmer who had an encounter with the creature two months ago.  They then proceed with their first night investigation (the whole jungle is hot on the thermal cam), and from there to the usual town (village) hall meeting, camp out (Cliff), witness interviews, and end with a second night investigation.  Despite Cliff finding some hairs (never explained), and the team hanging fruit as bait (literally low-hanging fruit), no orang pendek venture out of the forest to see us.  Again, lots of stories -- many credible-seeming -- but no real evidence or proof.
