Kipumbubu

Unknown Crocodilian of East Africa. Physical description: A very large crocodile. Behavior: Climbs up on the rim of riverboats at night, seizes people in its jaws, and eats them. Said to eat about six people each year. Distribution: Rufiji River, Tanzania. Possible explanation: Nile crocodiles (Crocody-lus niloticus) kill about 300 people every year in Africa, but jumping 3 feet up onto boat rims is not a standard feeding method.
