Bigfoot Walk as if on Tightropes, A Gorilla Does it Literally

Walking upright is one thing, but this is just showing off.
Today (12/24/12) The Telegraph filed a report about a tightrope walking Gorilla. This is of particular interest to Bigfooters since it is suggested that Bigfoot trackways often appear as if the Sasquatch was walking on a tightrope. Humans tend to straddle their gait, walking with a wider stance.

The London Trackway discovered in mid-February of 2012, had similar traits to fig.1 and many trackways with fewer prints also demonstrate this same formation.

It is quite a treat to see a Gorilla literally walking a tightrope. You can read the article from The Telegraph below:
Daredevil Gorilla walks across tightrope

First he was homesick, but Kidogo, a gorilla in Krefeld zoo in Germany, now appears to be enjoying himself with a walk across a tightrope similar to daredevil Nik Wallenda.

The 12-year-old silverback moved to Germany from Denmark's Givskud Zoo at the end of March. He was acquired by the German zoo after the previous male gorilla Massa proved to be infertile.

Kidogo, a western lowland gorilla nicknamed 'King Kodo' by his keepers, shares his gorilla garden with females Muna, 23 and Oya, 24. Roughly translated from Swahili, his name means "small".

After he initially suffered extreme homesickness, he has now discovered he is somewhat of an artiste.

This year, Krefeld zoo celebrates its 75 anniversary. A tightrope-walking gorilla would likely be a highlight of any zoo.

Kidogo, with a little more practice, could join the ranks of the great tightrope walkers. In June, Wallenda became the first man to walk across Niagara Falls on a high wire.
