For over a century, people have been leaving the forests of Sumatra, Indonesia telling tales of a short bipedal ape with human-like features. It’s named the Orang Pendek. Despite many sightings and internationally funded expeditions to find the creature, no tangible proof of has been captured to date. With mass deforestation taking place, some worry it could be eradicated before we even have the chance to study it. Interviews include Alex Schlegel, member of a National Geographic camera trapping team, Jeremy Holden, a photographer, naturalist, and Orang Pendek witness, and Dally Sandradiputra, cryptozoologist who lives in Indonesia, speak about the efforts to research this unique animal.
