Scientists to gather in Russia to study Yeti
By Stefan Korshak | Deutsche Presse-Agentur

MOSCOW — Scientists from seven countries will gather to discuss the possible existence of the fabled Yeti and the creature's biology and habits, Russian officials in the central Siberian town Tashtagol told the German news agency Deutsche Presse-Agentur.

Cryptozoological researchers from Russia, the United States and China will attend the meetings scheduled from Thursday to Saturday in Kemerovo province some 2,000 miles east of Moscow.

The experts will present "surprising insights, and unique photographs and audio recordings" about the creature, a Kemerovo spokesman said.

Local game wardens have cited evidence allegedly obtained by a motion-triggered camera in a cave some 50 miles away from Tashtagol as possible proof of the existence of an unknown hominid in the area.

Last year, the Kemerovo regional administration issued a "Yeti warning" and called on local residents to be on the lookout for a hairy bipedal creature which might come into the open looking for food because of forest fires burning in the area at the time.

The most recent Yeti expedition in the Kemerovo region took place in September.

"Cryptozoological researchers"?

Sounds like a couple of promoters are getting ready to start a new show on the Sci-Fi channel and they need some material to work with.

You are very smart to recognize that.

Cryptozoologists are discovering new species all the time. It's not all pseudo-science.
From Fortean Times Alien Zoo.
A month-long expedition in late 2005 to the hitherto unexplored Foja Mountains of New Guinea resulted in the rediscovery of a bowerbird and bird of para­dise, and the discovery of a wholly new honey­eater and giant rat. In November 2008, zoologist Dr Bruce Beehler led a second Conserv­ation International expedition to the Fojas, lasting another month. The official press release, in May this year, revealed that the team had once again discovered some truly remarkable animals.

One of their finds this time was a seemingly new species of Litoria tree frog instantly distinguished by the long, pointed protuberance on its nose that rises up when the male is calling out, but deflates and drops back down when he becomes less active. Like so many interesting zoological discoveries, this curious amphibian, aptly dubbed the Pinocchio frog, was chanced upon completely by accident, when herpetologist Paul Oliver happened to notice it sitting on a bag of rice in the campsite.

Another extraordinary find was a grotesque, gargoylesque gecko with bent toes and huge, bright yellow eyes. Nor should we overlook – though it may well be easy to do so – the minute Dorcopsulus forest wallaby that is not just a new species but may well be the smallest known species of wallaby anywhere in the world. Other noteworthy finds included a new Syconycteris blossom bat, and an unexpected tricolour-plumaged form of Ducula imperial pigeon (sporting rust, white, and grey feathers) that once again could prove to be a hitherto-undescribed species.

No it's about cryptozoologists.
