Bossburg "Cripple foot" casts. This is a pair of footprint impressions from a crippled Sasquatch, or Bigfoot, from Northeastern Washington State, cast and reconstructed by Dr. Grover Krantz, Professor of Anthropology at Washington State University.

By analyzing the differences between the deformed and normal prints, Dr. Krantz reconstructed the skeletal structure of the feet, and concluded the prints were made by a non-human, large-massed bipedal animal consistent with descriptions given in bigfoot sightings, and that due to their precise conformity to adaptations needed for the bipedal locomotion of such a large animal, fakery would be nearly impossible.

Resin casts.

"Example of Foot Pathology The track of an individual with a presumed cripple foot was discovered in Bossburg, Washington in 1969. The malformed right foot has been previously misidentified as a case of talipes equinoverus (clubfoot). However, it is consistent with the general condition of pes cavus, specifically metatarsus adductus or possibly skewfoot. Its unilateral manifestation makes it more likely that the individual was suffering from a lesion on the spinal cord rather than a congenital deformity. Regardless of the epidemiology, the pathology highlights the evident distinctions of skeletal anatomy. The prominent bunnionettes on the lateral margin of the foot mark the positions of the calcaneocuboid and cuboideometatarsal joints, which are positioned more distal than in a human foot. This accords with the inferred position of the transverse tarsal joint and confirms the elongation of the heel segment. Furthermore, deformities and malalignments of the digits permit inferences about the positions of interphalangeal joints and relative toe lengths, as depicted in the reconstructed skeletal anatomy depicted below."

Cripple foot "B" print measures  16 1/2" long by 9 1/2" wide.

This set is available in resin only. Produced by "Bone Clones", these casts are licensed by the estate of Grover Krantz and a royalty is paid to his estate for each purchase. The "Cripple foot" Bigfoot / Gigantopithecus blacki casts are $85
