The Quibbler[src]

The Yeti is a magical creature native to Tibet.

DescriptionEdit

The yeti is gigantic in size; it stands up to 15 feet tall, and is a snowy white furred humanoid creature, that may be related to the troll.

Protection from YetisEdit

It fears fire, and skilled wizards should be able to repel it as to be able to escape. The Yeti will attack and eat any thing that it meets, so no witch or wizard has had the opportunity to study it up close yet.

HistoryEdit

Yetis are one of the Wizarding World's worst kept secrets as there had been so many Muggle sightings of the Yeti. Because of this Tibet has one of the worst Wizarding secrecy records, due to its continuing breaches of Clause 73 of the International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy. The International Confederation of Wizards had to place a permanent International Task Force up in the mountains to help control the situation.

The Yeti is also known as Bigfoot or the Abominable Snowman; the Bigfoot variety lives in the Pacific Northwest of the United States.

Gilderoy Lockhart taught his second year class about the Yeti, probably using his book Year with the Yeti. However, based on his fraudulence, his information is taken from a more accomplished person and his own version is twisted into inaccuracy.

In 1998 The Quibbler questioned whether 4 Yeti footprints were sighted or if it was another prank. Xenophilius Lovegood misspelled Yeti as Yetti.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • The yeti is a creature purported to live in the portions of the Himalayas encompassing Nepal and Tibet, generally considered in modern times to be a misidentification of various types of bear native to the region, or a hybrid species of bear. The name "Abominable Snowman" derives from an account of a sighting of the creature in 1921 by a Lieutenant-Colonel Charles Howard-Bury. Bigfoot, on the other hand, describes a similar creature supposedly found in the Pacific Northwest of the United States, believed to have derived from a combination of local folklore, misidentification of local fauna, and various hoaxes.
