Yowie : a longhaired, gorilla-like creature
that walks on its hind legs. It is described as very muscular, with a
black shiny face, two big yellow eyes, a short thick neck, a hole for a
mouth with human-like fingers. The yowie is to Australia and Australians
what the yeren is to the Chinese.
Some cryptozoologists believe that it could be some
form of marsupial like an ape-man or ape, or that it is a modern-day
descendant of Homo Erectus.
