    What do we call this creature?

    1) Hairy One
    2) Sasquatch
    3) Bigfoot
    4) Abominable Snowman

    I would choose No.3 after searching in Internet. Am I right?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bigfoot

    As you can see, both "Bigfoot" and "Sasquatch" are used for the same creature, depending on where the name is used.

    Some say the Abominable Snowman is just a Sasquatch with its winter fur coloring.

    I haven't heard Hairy One used. There's also Yeti instead of Abominable Snowman.

    I thought the Yeti/Abominable Snowman were in the Himalayan Mountains, while Big Foot/Sasquatch was in the Canadian Rockies.

    (Actually both are at the poker game in Loch Ness right now.)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
