"The most satisfactory thing would be to get a picture or even a videotape of the creature," said Wang Fangchen, the scientist who will be heading the expedition. Mr Wang said previous reports about the 'Big Foot' yeti, or abominable snowmen were unscientific and irresponsible. The expedition also plans a comprehensive scientific survey of the region's environment, geography and meteorology. Shennongjia Nature Reserve, in the west of central Hubei province, is home to rare species, including the golden monkey.
