That's a fairly big dog too. It's just dwarfed by the wolf.

As for the Fitzroy Crossing images, there are cultural and language barriers, as well as distance from where most researchers reside, hindering us getting to the bottom of it.

So being from WA, im going to put my belated two cents in. As far as I'm aware a Mumari is the same as the Junjadee of the East. So whoever mentioned the 4ft tall mark would make sense.
I personally think that it might be one. My reasons being similar to Shazz, it reminds me of doco about chimps I watched. One of the males knocked around with his hair bristled up all the time to make himself look bigger. I think that's what could be happening in the first picture. In the second picture the Mumari has decided to beat feet out of there no longer bristling that might explain difference between the sizes.
Being ex army myself I don't see the ghillie suit explanation. I wouldn't be so different between the images. I reckon it's legit.

Hi Slats, If I put a silly number on my belief that these pics are authentic it would be about 95% dead cert.
The 5% is always the possibility it’s fake and a disclaimer if anyone scoffs.
I like to think that I’m not easily sucked in by things and usually hover with a safe 50/50.

A few on here quickly dismissed it as a ghillie suit. I know jack about ghillie suits; do they go right down
to the ankle like trouser legs ? I imagine their colour and texture would relate to different military dress ?
This could explain the thick appearance of the lower legs, like this short individual is wearing overalls.
But there is the blur and the shadow which enlarges things.

As I mentioned in a previous post, along with some other enthusiastic posters, the Katrina Tucker sketch
is ‘compelling’ when compared to the roadside pic. What are the odds that her sketch is so similar.

Maybe the Fitzroy Crossing hoaxers used her sketch as a guide.
Especially the stoop and the pointed head. They had to bribe their 9 year old younger brother
to wear the suit. Because anyone bigger, the suit would only partially cover them.

As for WA Slats and your 'belated two cents', it's unfortunate that your fellow aussies on the east coast,
sometimes are not conscious of western Australia. Always like to hear what you have to say.
I hope there are some more reports from your state.
The only news we get over here is about mining magnates and shark attacks.

Hey T and Yowie Bait
Ghillie suits do go all the way down but they are mainly designed to break up your outline and wouldn't change your shape as much as the first photo. If you can tell if someone is standing up in one.

I also went to the FB page and the guy who originally posted it was asking what it was (he seemed to be a Christian aboriginal that has no idea of privacy settings)
The page admins shared saying Mummari (hairyman) and I would be driving fast. The comments below the post ranged from jokes about people a fair few said hairyman and one tagged a mate saying they knew what it was and run.

The first photo is a picture of a picture on someone's phone and It's been shared around a bit. In my opinion it's a strange way to perpetrate a hoax and aboriginals wouldn't play around with that sort of stuff but again just my opinion.

It might just be a picture of a Mummari/Junjadee we can only hope!

That puts a different perspective on it. Would be easy to mistake the suit for a hairy at night or a distance. Most pics are blurry too so lack of definition could cause confusion.

Yeah but the thing is there's not many hunters that use them it's to dangerous. You could easily be mistaken for an animal and shot. Plus they are pretty expensive so I doubt someone would buy one just for a hoax. But stranger things do happen I suppose.

Yeah Slats i doubt there would be many purchasing the ghillie suits or monkey suits for hoaxing. I know theres one forum member that claims to know people who don the monkey suit to fool others but it would have to be a rare situation.

They're relatively popular amongst bow hunters... usually trimmed down to just a vest and hood.
When hunting by bow you gotta get much closer than with a rifle.

Gee, I want to believe its real but do think it could be a well crafted fake.

Cannot be sure but it looks to be around 4-5ft tall, appearing stunned like dear in headlights.

It puts in the range of a Wordajti/Junjadee
