This Week On 'Beyond the Edge' Radio - Primatologist Esteban Sarmiento

Tune in this Sunday night at 10:00 pm EDT as Eric, Lon and the Forkchop welcome Esteban Sarmiento, primatologist at the American Museum of Natural History in New York and a functional anatomist. His main field of study is the skeletons of hominoids, both extinct species and extant species. He also co-authored 'The Last Human: A Guide to Twenty-Two Species of Extinct Humans' which was published in 2007.

Sarmiento is one of the few mainstream experts to give serious attention to cryptozoology, particularly reports of Bigfoot. Sarmiento does not suggest that the existence of Bigfoot has been established, but that its existence is possible and that claims and evidence deserve careful scrutiny, stating, "If real, this animal is exceedingly human-like. It would be our closest relative on earth.” He has appeared on several episodes of the History Channel series Monster Quest discussing Bigfoot and other "cryptids.
