In Search of the Congo Dinosaur

Posted by: John Kirk on May 27th, 2014


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.

Hearing the creature for myself in 2012 was mind blowing. That can be seen in episode 4 of the series.

You can watch it all unfold below on youtube:

    These expedition members should have had enough contact with the local people, that they would know if it would be feasibile to train a few of them in the use of cameras, particularly, game trail cameras. They would know the best places to position them, and would have the best chance of seeing the creatures, and filming them, if they had cameras on them, in the course of their daily lives. Considering the costs of sending expeditions there, it would seem economical, in comparison, to purchase the cameras to leave there. Has anyone considered this? I would be surprised no one else has thought of this.

    very interesting videos.

    thank for posting.

    its totally remote… i mean if something is out there, you’d suspect it would be out there.

    one thing that i find curious… if its that big, wouldn’t it need to be eating a LOT of food to support it?

    leaves and tree’s dont have a lot of calories, it would require a LOT of calories to survive each day…. meaning it would eat a lot, no?

    wonder if someone left some cameras with the locals if they’d be able to catch a photo of it or something.

    I was just stopping by Cryptomundo to catch up during a break from watching the excellent 5 part documentary Full Color Football: The American Football League Story, when I stumbled up this article and videos. The AFL is going on hold until I finish these, I am fascinated by the prospects of undiscovered dinosaurs in remote Africa or other areas. Thanks for posting!

    I’ve always been fascinated by the possibility of living dragons or dinosaurs, particularly in remote regions such as central Africa where they really could survive. And even if there is no real creature, these expeditions are worthy pursuits simply because these areas are so unexplored.

Sorry. Comments have been closed.
