What sagittal Crest?

A sagittal crest is a ridge of bone that runs across the middle of the skull in apes like gorillas. Its purpose is to serve as a place of attachment for the the large muscles of the jaw. Human jaw muscles are attached at the temples. A high crown is not a sagittal crest. The creature in the Patterson film does not appear to have a sagittal crest in my opinion.

About Me

My photo
I've lived in the woods and came to know and understand the creatures that inhabit it. I have compassion for all God's creatures, most especially the creature known whimsically as "bigfoot", since he is more like us than any other. I am now an old man and unable to run around in the woods. If I were able I would be out there right now trying to prove his existence. I started this blog to try to express some of the ideas and speculations I have had on bigfoot. I am not into bigfoot social events. I don't gossip about other bloggers. I try to keep myself informed of events. My ideas and opinions are my own and I make no apology for them. They are not written in stone and I welcome any and all civil comments. I am looking for the truth, not fame.
