Adam Davies Returns from India

Adam Davies returned Saturday, November 20th from his expedition in search of India’s famed apeman, the Mande Burung (Wild Jungle People). After two weeks in the jungles of the West Garo Hills district of the state of Meghalaya, Adam and his team of researchers came away with some very compelling evidence of the creature’s existence. Having just returned, Adam was understandably jet-lagged and exhausted, but he was kind enough to send me a brief email in which he offered to allow me to reprint some of the initial notes he made on his blog concerning his findings. I hope to speak with Adam soon (once he’s rested and recovered) to gather some further information about this latest expedition, but in the meanwhile, here is what he has to say:

Mande Burung “Ape Man” Expedition Yields Evidence

I just arrived home a few hours ago. As you no doubt appreciate, I am a tired tonight, but I had an amazing time, and felt that I, and the rest of the team, met with some great success. I will post more detail about the expedition over the next few weeks, but here are some headlines.

I am convinced the Mande-Burung exists. Dave Archer found what appears to be an MB footprint, at a site where an eyewitness confirmed he had seen the creature. He and John McGowan, went on to find a trail of them. I found an MB footprint in Nokrek national Park. What I found particularly interesting about this one, was that you could see a boulder in the stream which had been tossed aside, followed by some debris of a freshwater crab. The locals had told me on previous occasions that the MB was fond of eating these particular types of crab. Whilst I can’t be certain it was an MB print, the size and shape were certainly consistent with eyewitness reports. The casting at site failed due to the very wet conditions.

We collected a number of very consistent eyewitness reports, which described a large black bipdeal ape, which built ground nests and ate bamboo. Nothing on the camera traps so far, but we haven’t finished going through them all yet. We have collected hair and bone samples which just MAY come from the MB, but of course we need to test them. Quite by chance, and very significantly indeed, John McGowan may well have discovered a completley new species. I can’t say anything more about this though, until he has conducted a thorough analysis.

The area has some amazing , vast, and largely untraversed, jungle. Beautiful. The perfect place for a relic gigantopithicus….

    How the hell do you know they don’t exist? Have you ever been to search for them? Either they exist or thousands of people around the world are liars.
    The yeti and the orang-pendek exist. I’ve seen their tracks.

  2. You will NEVER find Mande Burung or any other similar creature, Adam, because they don’t exist. IF they did, you if anyone, would have found these elusive creatures by now. Go search for known animals in instead, than you would at least find something…

  3. I congratulate Mr. Davies on his successful expedition. I know something of how challenging some cryptid hunts can be in remote wildernesses.

  4. I am coming round a little after the expedition,though doing the day job has proved very difficult indeed these past few days, I have managed!I hope to start going through my photographs soon ,and talking more about the MB. I should also take this opportunity to thank Dipu Marak, who together with his team, were incredibly helpful and hospitable.
