A small unidentified creature has been captured in the former Soviet Republic of Azerbaijan. The creature appears to have an extremely hairy body, a monkey-like face, and rather small humanoid hands.

At first, the creature can be seen lying down in a rather somber fashion, looking around and blinking with glassy eyes. In a later portion of the video, the creature appears to be roaming around a room, tied to some type of leash.

This bizarre creature could be compared to a small monkey, appearing to be no bigger than two feet. The bipedal creature can be seen walking on two legs, moving rather quickly. While some have put this creature in the same category as the mythical creature “big foot”, most viewers of the video have claimed that the creature is simply an unfortunate monkey who has been forced into some type of man made costume that includes a shabby wig.

But nonetheless, the creature has been included in the research of Cryptozoology, which is typically the study of the existence or searches for creatures whose reported existence is not supported. These creatures could include, Sasquatch or the Loch Ness monsters. On one website, cryptomundo.com, Igor Burtsev of the International Center of Hominology presented the video to the website.

Igor Burstev is a Moscow native who is considered to be a “Yeti” expert. He has claimed to have gathered evidence that the Russian yeti exist. Concerning the creature in the video, Burstev claims that the small creature could be a baby big foot, a small almasty, or simply a monkey in a suit. In order for the creature to be confirmed as real or fake, much more evidence is needed.

The appearance of the creature does seem rather bizarre but, the video could have been easily staged with minimal effort. Could the creature be a relative of the infamous big foot? Or is this a simply a monkey who has been made to appear as such?
