# 7 ) MOKELE-MBEMBE
"Location: Congo River Basin, Africa
Class: living dinosaur
Description: 20-30 foot long creature resembling a Brontosaurus dinosaur
Mokele-mbembe, whose name means “One Who Stops the Flow of Rivers,” is described as a 20-30 foot animal resembling a Sauropod dinosaur (a.k.a.
Brontosaurus/Apatosaurus). The creature, according to local natives, hangs out in the rivers, swamplands and lakes of the Congo, usually with its
body submerged while extending its long neck upward to graze on low-hanging plants.
Sightings by westerners date back to 1932 when the notable cryptozoologist Ivan T. Sanderson claimed to see an enormous creature in the Mainyu River.
Over the years, evidence besides anecdotal tales has been noted, including curious three-toed footprints and suspected cave dugouts. Many expeditions
by outsiders have been launched in hopes of finding this living dinosaur, including a Japanese crew that captured what they believe is a Mokele-mbembe
on video in 1987.
Skeptics point out that it would be extremely unlikely for a creature such as this to have escaped the mass dinosaur extinction, not to mention that
there is no definitive physical evidence. Yet when a series of animal and dinosaur pictures is shown to eyewitnesses, they always identify the
Sauropod while exclaiming: “Mokele-mbembe.” Some skeptics feel that these are actually large hippopotamus being mistaken for dinosaurs, but
nonetheless, the natives are sticking to their belief that Mokele-mbembe is something far more monstrous."
