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’.

I first came upon the following crypto-case many years ago when browsing through Dr Bernard Heuvelmans’s book Les Derniers Dragons d’Afrique (Plon: Paris, 1978), and it has fascinated me ever since.

As everyone knows, I’m a total Boggy Creek geek. My collection includes many vintage items related to the various Boggy Creek movies, and now, thanks to my good friend Cliff Barackman, I’m the owner of the “juvenile creature” mask from Boggy Creek II (1985).

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.
