Bipedal cryptid primate thought to inhabit the mountainous forest of Sumatra.
The Orang Pendek, also known as the Uhang Pandak, is said to be a bipedal ape living in the jungles of the island Sumatra.
Described as an ape of 3 to 5 feet in height, with long hair that ranges in color from gray, to black, to a reddish brown, to a honey color. It is never spotted in trees like a monkey, but instead it is usually spotted walking upright on the jungle floor more like a gorilla or other sasquatch type cryptids.
The locals claim that it often raids their fields to steal their crops, and it is especially fond of potatoes and asian Durian fruit.
Both Western visitors as well as natives to Sumatra have claimed to see the upright walking creature, and have even found hair and tracks.
After analysis by the Copenhagen University the samples were said to suggest a new species of unknown upright orangutan.
