The Nandi Bear is a cryptid, or unconfirmed animal, reported to live in Africa. It takes its name from the Nandi people who live in western Kenya, near where the Nandi Bear is reported as living. The Nandi people call it Kerit. Local legend holds that it only eats the brain of its victims.
Descriptions of the Nandi Bear are of a ferocious, powerfully built carnivore with high front shoulders (over four feet tall) and a sloping back; somewhat similar to a hyena. Some have speculated that Nandi Bears are in fact a misidentified hyena (or an unrecognized hyena subspecies)

not self-evident to me... I'd think of humans as the most feared or fearful animal, and with good reason, but when a person sees how small creatures refuse to back down against foes two, three and four times their size, that instinctive drive is real fearlessness to me.
