YouTube user JJYowie Search released a video Thursday that purportedly reveals the animal hiding behind the bushes of the Australian wilderness.

The footage, taken by a tree cam last February, allegedly shows what the J & J ​ Yowie Search organization believes to be a “young Yowie”, also known as the Australian Bigfoot.

“Watch how it moves side to side the way it lifts its head as it looks at the apples on the rock,” the group said on their description of the video.

The animal’s eyes shine “as it concentrates on the apples, taking no notice of the infrared from the tree camera,” they added.

The founders of the Yowie Research group, Jason and Jason, say they started looking for the cryptid in 2012. They claim they have searched for the creature across most of Queensland and New South Wales National Parks, although they “would like to travel to the US in Search of Sasquatch too.”

According to the pair, they have experienced many signs of Yowie before, like “growling, rocks thrown, tree branches snapped, strange smells, felt as if we are being watched, seen many foot prints, felt like being followed walking out in the middle of no where late at night.”

Even though the creature on the video certainly resembles a sloth, these animals are not native to any region of Australia and they are illegal to have as pets. The possibility of the video showing a big unidentified ape remains open.

In the 1970s, two of Australia’s chilliest Yowie sightings were documented by the local press.

    This looks like a dropbear to me.

    My buddy & I did something similar to a city fella who had moved into the neighborhood & put up a trail camera. We rented a gorilla suit & got just near enough to his trail camera that he could see a ‘large, upright, ape-like creature’ but stayed far enough away & turned to where he couldn’t make out the face well enough to know it was a prank. He still thinks there’s a ‘bigfoot’ out on his property someplace. People are gullible.

      Prove it. Post some video of you or your buddy in the gorilla suit. Plus post a link to or provide a name for the store where you rented this gorilla suit.

      I don’t think you can, or will. I think you’re lying. (not all people are gullible)

    That’s a really neat-o mask that guy is wearing! I like the shiny latex!

    That’s the trouble with night-vision cameras- it’s hard to fake skin- just doesn’t come out well using masks.

    Maybe if you moved the camera a little further away it wouldn’t be so obvious.

    How is it that in 2014, someone can post a nicely edited video with titles and background, but they actual video is 360p. The scene is being videod through what looks like vaseline or spider webs. There is an IR light source that is sub par. The light source is to the left of the scene. The “yowie” is looking down and to the right. It’s eyes never move. The “creature” moves like someone with a neck brace on. For the eyes to glow, the light has to strike the tapetum lucidum of the eye in such a way that it hits the camera, normally this is caused by the light source being within about 6 inches of the camera lens. It can be reflected at other times but the “yowie” would have to be facing the light source..It would have to look in a direction that is pretty close to where the camera is. The eyes on the “creature” seem un-naturally close together. If this was a real creature there would be flickering of the eyes and blinking. The reflected light would not be as bright as it is. The only creatures I have ever seen that move their whole head when inspecting something are usually arboreal and are trying to judge distance. The slow motion closeup image further enforces the un-canniness of the “creature”. It does not move in any natural fashion. It reminds me of a bad animatronic in a lame carnival ride.

    1/10 for making me post.

    1990 called, they want their hoax back.

    get a go pro film and post in full 1080p, buy several large IR sources from amazon. Don’t use animatronics, or LED’s for eyes. If your going to use animatronics instead of a child in a suit, spend the extra money to have a moving head and blinking moving eyes.

    Better yet, film a real creature with 1080p and good lighting.

    With all the modern video equipment there is no excuse anymore for blurry, shaky, grainy, or low resolution video of Cryptozoids.

      @ The Flinx

      I couldn’t agree more, when I saw the resolution the first thing I thought was 360p? In 2014? Really?! Its quickly becoming a rule of thumb to automatically dismiss low-res videos as fakes due to the abundance of cheap HD cameras. There really is no excuse.

    Without critiquing the photography, myself, I don’t see why people get so emotional, over primates being reported in unexpected places.

    They’re usually understood to be ordinary animals, with no supernatural abilities — no serious challenge to anyone’s worldview.

    Something very unconvincing about this…and why is the footage so short?

    These clowns have been around a while. I think they see themselves in a TV show. Every shadow in the bush is a yowie. Couldn’t be anything else. Anyone who can bear their videos must know that Jason & Jason have made Pareidolia into an art form on YouTube.. This offering is a 15 second clip of what could be anything with no start or finish. Was this taken from a longer clip? How long does the reset take between captures? Many other questions? These ‘researchers’ are having a lend of people. It’s all about YouTube hits, google advertising and dreams of reality TV. I hope they do start hunting for sasquatch… And stay there. They’ll fit right in.

    I find it strange that a trail camera can even be activated at that distance. I own a couple and there range is not that good.And don’t try and say it is close as if that is the case the eyes are too small and to close to one another.Sorry I say Fake.Maybe someone having a lend of them..Lol…

    I just read an article that stated humans and apes do not have eye shine. So it stands to reason Bigfoot doesn’t either.

    this is a troll.. not the cryptid but a literall troll its probably a hoax but there is always a chance.. but on youtube there’s even less of a chance.

    Looks like something from the old star wars movies. Im not convinced this is real at all. It doesnt appear to have fur or even blink.. Of course im not sure what a yowie would look like but i think it would blink or move around a bit. It just sits there… Not doing anything.. Why are the eyes so lit up? Makes it look stupid
