Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch, is a legendary creature often depicted as a large, hairy humanoid. Bigfoot is said to reside in forests and wilderness areas. It is characterized by its enormous size, standing at an estimated 7 to 10 feet tall. Bigfoot is said to have a robust and muscular build and long, shaggy hair covering its body, typically described as brown or dark in color.

One of Bigfoot’s distinguishing features is its massive footprints, said to be around 16 to 24 inches long. These footprints have fueled the legend and given rise to its name.

The organization known as the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO) keeps tabs on which states have the highest number of reported Bigfoot sightings. Their website claims to have a massive database of legit sightings and related reports. It’s maintained by a dedicated network of volunteer researchers, archivists, and investigators specializing in bigfoot and sasquatch phenomena in the United States and Canada.

Where did Florida fall on the list?

Florida ranks at number 3 with a total of 339 documented bigfoot sightings. Collier and Marion lead with 21 and 19 sightings among the counties in the state. De Soto, Glades, Hamilton, Hardee, Lafayette, St. Lucie, and Walton have no reported sightings at all.

According to the organization’s findings, several other states have also had notable sightings of Bigfoot. California comes in second with 461 reported encounters, followed by Ohio with 321 and Illinois with 303.

Meanwhile, in Colorado, there have been 130 reported sightings of Bigfoot. The state is also home to the Sasquatch Outpost Museum in Bailey. This museum offers visitors a chance to dive deeper into Bigfoot. The museum claims that they are committed to unraveling the mystery surrounding Bigfoot and extending a warm invitation to all those intrigued by Sasquatch.
