Mokèlé-mbèmbé is the name given to a large creature reported to live in the lakes and swamps of the Congo River basin. The term "Mokèlé-mbèmbé" comes from the Lingala language, and can be roughly translated as “one who stops the flow of rivers.” (Clark, 261)
The creature's very existence and identification have long been debated between mainstream scientists, local Pygmies, creationists and cryptozoologists. It has been suggested that the creature could possibly be a relict sauropod which survived extinction. Although this theory has received minimal attention or support from scientists, the living dinosaur theory is highly popular among enthusiasts. Although science would say that Mokele-Mbembe can be best described as a fraud supported by myth and misidentification of other animals, Mokele-Mbembe is one of the most famous cryptozoological mysteries, along with Bigfoot, the Yeti, and the Loch Ness Monster.
I don't believe that we lived in tribes surrounded by dinosaurs, though. Humans could never survive an environment with those kind of predators... but I do believe that modern man has shared this planet with Dinosaurs - even today. We call them sea monsters etc.

I think you are talking about Mokele-mbembe from wiki below.

if humans did exist alongside dinos, then they would essentially have to have been the top class of warriors we could only fathom in comics. but scientifically speaking, i dont believe it to be that outrageous to think that some type of "superhumans" could have existed alongside dinos.
but thats just my opinion. im just giving a hypothetical outlook on what could have bee

It's still possible that we will find creatures in the ocean that were thought extinct,

Well, you do have that famous human footprint beside a dinosaur footprint in fossil form that sparked alot of discussion on the subject. I don't know if it was true or not.
A few individuals continue to promote the Paluxy "man tracks" or alleged human tracks in pre-Tertiary rocks from other localities, but such claims are not considered credible by either mainstream scientists or major creationist groups.
None of the four trails at the Taylor site (Paluxy) can today be regarded as unquestionably of human origin. The Taylor Trail appears, obviously, dinosaurian, as do two prints thought to be in the Turnage Trail. The Giant Trail has what appears to be dinosaur prints leading toward it, and some of the Ryals tracks seem to be developing claw features, also.

Dinosaurs coexisting with humans is impossible. So is a global flood. It didn't happen. Anyone telling you otherwise is feeding you propaganda because they want you to give them your money.
