The Almas is generally believed to be wild people in appearance and in habits than compared to apes. They are usually described as human-like bipedal animals that are between five and six and a half feet tall with reddish-brown hair covering their whole bodies. Their facial features are anthropomorphic including a pronounced brow ridge, flat nose, and weak chin. It’s also described as hairy, stinky, mute, and living in “paleolithic squalor” at the base of the Himalayas. Many cryptozoologists believe that there is a similarity between the Almas and the modern reconstructions of how Neanderthals might have looked, but there is no physical evidence to support that statement.
