Nyama

Dinosaur-like animal of Central Africa, similar to the EMELA-NTOUKA.

Physical description: Large and hippopotamuslike. Small head with a crest.

Behavior: Amphibious. When it walks on land, the earth trembles. Said to eat the brains of humans.

Distribution: Aruwimi River, Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Significant sighting: When police lieutenant Alex Godart was camped along the Aruwimi River in 1912, he felt what seemed to be a violent earthquake. One of his soldier escorts rushed to the river with a gun but came back saying that the Nyama had gone back into the water.
