Amali

Dinosaur-like animal of Central Africa, similar to the Mokele-Mbembe.

Etymology: Myene (Bantu), "fabulous animal." Linguistically similar to the N'yamala. Behavior: Amphibious. Tracks: Three claws. Prints are the size of frying pans.

Habitat: Lakes. Distribution: Gabon.

Significant sighting: The adventurer Trader Horn allegedly discovered a cave painting of an Amali, chiseled it out, and sent it as a gift to President Ulysses S. Grant. If true, this incident most likely occurred in the early 1880s, after Grant left office.

Sources: Trader Horn, Life and Works, ed. Ethelreda Lewis (London: Jonathan Cape, 1927), vol. 1, pp. 272-273; Bernard Heuvelmans, Les derniers dragons d'Afiique (Paris: Plon, 1978), pp. 250-251, 268.
