The Ban-manush has been witnessed in Bangladesh, India, and Nepal, of up to six feet tall. Its name means "ape man" in Indo-Aryan. It is one of the more aggressive Bigfoot varieties, known for occasionally kidnapping humans. The Ban-Manush is very similar to another Bangladesh cryptid, the Mande Barung. It is also one of the many variations of the mythical Abominable Snowman in South Asia which include the Yeti and the Barmanou.
