Capcom Sponsors Real-Life Monster Hunt
Bid to track down 40ft anaconda and hairy "ape-like being" with claws.
by Rob Burman, IGN UK

UK, September 10, 2007 - Capcom is sponsoring an expedition to Guyana to hunt for the South American version of Bigfoot - called the di-di - and the equally elusive 40ft anaconda as part of its campaign to promote Monster Hunter Freedom 2 on PSP in the UK.

Leading the search, which begins in November, will be the Centre for Fortean Zoology (CFZ) which specialises in searching out mythical beasts, including the saliva spitting 'death worm' and the ninki nanka.

While the giant snake on the CFZ's radar is fairly self-explanatory, you might be less familiar with the di-di. It's a hairy, ape-like creature believed to have killed cattle by ripping out their tongue with its sharp claws. According to the CFZ, the didi could be a species of ground sloth thought to be extinct - or, failing that, completely imaginary, we suppose.
