The Ban Manush is a type of bigfoot which has been spotted in Bangladesh, India, and Nepal. Measuring at six feet tall, its name means "ape man" in Indo-Aryan. It is one of the more aggressive Bigfoot varieties, known for occasionally kidnapping humans. It is also one of the many variations of the mythical Abominable Snowman in South Asia which include the Yeti and the Barmanu to name a few. The Ban Manush is very similar to another Bangladesh cryptid, the Mande Barung.
