Significant sighting: In the 1920s, S. V. Cook heard stories of little red men in the Kwa Ngombe Hills, Kenya. Possible explanations:
(1) An undiscovered population of forest Pygmies.
(2) Surviving australopith (see Kakundakari ), possibly corresponding to one of the Kenyan cryptids, designated as hominid X4, described by Jacqueline Roumeguère-Eberhardt in 1990. Sources: S. V. Cook, "The Leprechauns of
Kwa Ngombe," Journal ofthe East Afiica and Uganda Natural History Society, no. 20 (November 1924): 24; Roger Courtney, A Greenhorn in Africa (London: H.
