Our interactive Bigfoot variant map has a listing on the Nguoi Rung. read the following entry from our map. 
Nguoi Rung ("forest man") is a creature said to inhabit Vietnam, reputedly similar to the bigfoot, sometimes also known as "forest people". It is described as being approximately six feet tall and covered with hair except in the knees, the soles of the feet, the hands, and the face. The hair ranges in color from gray to brown to black. The creature walks on two legs and has been reported both solitary and moving in small groups. The creature is most often sighted foraging for food from fruits and leaves to langers and even flying foxes.
Two Nguoi Rung were reportedly captured by tribesmen near Dak Lak Province in 1971. In 1974 a North Vietnamese general, Hoang Minh Thao, requested an expedition to find evidence of the creatures, but it was unsuccessful.[
Cryptozoologist Loren Coleman suggests in his book, "The Field Guide to Bigfoot and Other Mystery Primates" that the Nguoi Rung are a possible surviving population of Homo erectus or Neanderthal.
Professor Tran Hong Viet is a researcher of Nguoi Rung who in 1982 claimed to have located a footprint measuring 28x16cm.
