Veteran cryptozoological explorer Bill Gibbons has searched for a number of notable mystery beasts in the field over the years, such as the Congo’s mokele-mbembe and emela-ntouka. He has also brought several hitherto-obscure examples to widespread cryptozoological attention, including Nepal’s crocodile-jawed limbless ‘dragons’, the New Guinea pterodactyl-like ropen, and the giant Congolese spider or j’ba fofi.

It may be the most famous one, but the long-necked moekel-mbembe, often likened to a sauropod dinosaur, is not the only mystery beast allegedly inhabiting the vast Likouala swamplands of the People’s Republic of the Congo. Less familiar but definitely no less interesting is a second major mystery beast claimed by this region’s pygmies to live here – a truly extraordinary (and exceedingly formidable) creature known to them as the emela-ntouka, or ‘killer of elephants’.

Numerous eyewitnesses have reported seeing a living dinosaur in the jungles of Cameroon. The locals refer to the creature as Mokele-Mbembe and it may be the last living sauropod dinosaur. The dinosaur sightings report a creature with a heavily armored body, a fringe of scales down its back, three foot circumference footprints, long neck, snake like head, a body as big as an elephant, claw-like feet and a long tail. In the MonsterQuest Episode “The Last Dinosaur”, the team goes to Africa in search of this last living dinosaur.

I want to let you in on a great documentary series done by my mate Wayne Hall. It’s called In Search of the Congo dinosaur.
Yes, there are creationist overtones which some may not agree with, but the essence of Mokele-mbembe research is captured in this series. This is a real passion of mine and I reckon that all the deprivations that me (my) mates and I have undergone has been worth it.

Roy Mackal was part of a unique and sometimes ridiculed fraternity of explorers whose members are never happier than when they are sinking waist-deep into the unguent mud of the jungle or navigating the skirling fog of Loch Ness.

This article appears in all the international publications of the Metro. In it,I discuss the importance of analysing evidence and cryptids carefully. I do however recognise that there will always be a place for lovable eccentrics in the field.
