If you ever go on vacation to Mali (which, as every schoolboy knows, is in West Africa), you may care to visit the city of Timbuktu, which many think is a mythical place, but it isn't. Here too live the Dogon, made famous by Robert Temple's book The Sirius Mystery. But the natives will warn you about something else: where other countries have werewolves, Mali has were-lions. However, there are ways you can tell if someone is a werelion. First of all, a werelion will speak with a nasal voice. Secondly, he will have a smell of carrion about him. Actually, I think I have met several people to whom these criteria apply, without going to Mali at all. If threatened by a were-lion, you need copper bullets to kill him. However, I don't suppose they'll let you take copper bullets on the plane to Mali.
In Sudan, on the other hand, it is said that certain beautiful young women are the offspring of a mating between human and lion. Sounds a bit dangerous to me. If you marry one of these women, she may end up eating you, so don't say you haven't been warned.
