Florida’s Bigfoot: The Skunk Ape with Dave Shealy

by Tim Hart | Oct 31, 2019 10:42:00 AM

I have always been fascinated with the Skunk Ape. Skunk Ape is basically Florida’s Bigfoot and is mainly sighted in the Everglades.

With doing this podcast, I figured I would give an episode to talking about Skunk Ape and the #1 Skunk Ape expert in the Everglades agreed to come on and talk about it. Dave Shealy of Skunk Ape Research Headquarters based in Ochopee in the middle of the Everglades. Dave has seen the Skunk Ape three times in his life and discusses all of them and more on this episode.

Dave also touched on a bunch of other topics as well as the Skunk Ape.

His life in the Everglades

How Cougars from Texas replaced the Florida Panther

How Pythons are taking the rap for Cougars eating all the wildlife

Dave had technical difficulties in the Everglades and video was not cooperating. We did fill the video with pics of Dave, his research center and famous pics of the Skunk Ape.
