A comparison of bedding between Great Apes and the fabled Australian Ape

This document is a brief comparison of the bedding and nesting habits of the Great Apes and the fabled Australian Ape. It is our contention, and one that seems to be growing, that as yet undiscovered Australian Yowie (like the Sasquatch) is simply and undiscovered ape rather than undiscovered type of pre human.
When we began our investigation in river laden national park on Queensland’s Sunshine coast, we began with this hypothesis that we are dealing with an undiscovered great ape. The first item that alerted us to this fact was not the human looking footprints we found and nor was it any other report or witness statements but rather the first grass bed we found in April 2012. I conducted a comparison between this and great apes and found startling similarities between the two, not the same; they simply shared some common traits such as tea cup formations, grass spirals and completely depressed vegetation
This subject, as a starting point of comparison given the lack of data on other areas of comparison being foot prints, habits, diets, hunting or family structures will demonstrate a clear association or ‘possible instinctual association’ between the comparable subjects. Through the assistance of a local academic institutions we where able to rule out known mainstream animals having created these ‘nests’ or ‘beds’ such as Kangaroo’s and Wild Pigs. The only Kangaroo capable of some of these beds are not contained with this area. The species in question is a Red Kangaroo which can reach heights of up to 8 feet in some instances.

In this exorcise, we are not looking to identify the species obviously as they are different. What we are looking for is ‘convergent behavior’ or ‘similar or to posses ape like qualities’ in their presentation and if this link can be established it may guide us to other ‘Ape-like’ qualities and bring us closer to solving this puzzle.
Assuming these ‘unknown creatures’ are real for the uninitiated, our research team has had numerous encounters with them which include vocalizations, intimidation like behaviour such as rock throwing and sensory awareness such as smells of rotting flesh and pungent urine. This also includes some photographic evidence all contained with other reports.
Our research team has dubbed this family unit we are dealing with as ‘River Apes’ given this name as these creatures live on the banks of a river system within a National Park and State Forest. We believe their adaptations to river life and the naturally variable diet compared to those Yowies that live in the mountains regions of Australia. In my view it would be similar in relationship and difference to Highland or Mountain Gorillas and Cross River Gorillas, similar and same in the main but have different nuances and ways of life given their local environment.
In the later part of this post, I have simply inserted pages from the hard copy of our report on this subject in the interests of time.
