Fahrenbach foot length has...According to Dr Wolf H. Fahrenbach foot length has an allometric relation to height. This is basically what you found yourself. Fahrenbach took 89 cases where sasquatch height was directly observed/estimated and the respective sasquatch foot print measured. He came out with an allometric formula of H=29.624xL^0.42054, where H=height and L=foot length.<br /><br />However keep in mind that the formula is accurate at the middle of the sasquatch foot length spectrum but somewhat overestimates height with very small foot lengths while underestimating it at the large foot lengths.<br /><br />Using the formula, and accounting for the underestimation of height with very large foot sizes, a sasquatch with a 24" foot print should be around 9'6" to 10'0".<br /><br />The reason foot size has an allometric relation to height is because taller primates are proportionally heavier. Primate weight increases by-the-power-of-2.9 to height, and this applies to sasquatch as well. Therefore, a 10'0" male sasquatch of average build will weigh around 1,320-lbs. This is assuming a 6-foot scaled weight of 300-lbs. If you were to extrapolate this out to 13-foot, the sasquatch would weigh 2,824-lbs.<br /><br />I don't personally believe a 13-foot, 2,824-lb sasquatch exists, as he would have to have a foot-length of around 40-inches to support his weight.<br />http://www.bfro.net/REF/THEORIES/WHF/FahrenbachArticle.htmAlanhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/11283498586861712352noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-562032584293780619.post-77908135783876051852018-01-17T11:52:03.190-08:002018-01-17T11:52:03.190-08:00Your weight estimates are way off.

( a taller bigfoot is wider and thicker than a smaller bigfoot). 5'5" neanderthal = 65" 13' bigfoot = 156" 156/65 =2.4 then 2.4x2.4x2.4 = 13.84, then 13.84 x 171 lbs gives 2364 lbs for a 13' BF. You can try with Shaq, if you want. But 2364 lbs is polar bear weight , or large horse weight, so it makes sense there as well.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-562032584293780619.post-54432868347451401632017-07-02T13:21:39.937-07:002017-07-02T13:21:39.937-07:00You are basing it on eyewitness accounts of prints...You are basing it on eyewitness accounts of prints and ones you have seen around, but unless you see that individual make that print, it's erroneous. If we are to use any kind of indicator for height to foot measures - we need to base it on their basic body structure which resembles the proportions of a Neanderthal and not a Homo sapiens. So, my formula is based on a race of people estimation. If you were to see one of us in public and find prints, you might make guesses about our proportions but by trying to base it on individuals that you cannot tie exactly to a print, it's a stab in the dark. Our own feet can vary. I have a friend who wears size 12 and is my height and had a brother who was 6'1" and wore size 12. There are variables, but at looking at body proportions, we cannot equate them to our proportions, but must go into an archaic who was similar. We cannot equate their height to prints found unless we witnessed them making that print.<br />Sharon Dayhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/13609356325356264202noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-562032584293780619.post-57736932419192120332017-07-02T13:11:08.378-07:002017-07-02T13:11:08.378-07:00This is way off.

The weight also seems to be on the light side.
