At the beginning of the 21st Century monsters still roam the remote, and sometimes not so remote, corners of our planet. It is our job to search for them. The Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] is - we believe - the largest professional, scientific and full-time organisation in the world dedicated to cryptozoology - the study of unknown animals. Since 1992 the CFZ has carried out an unparalleled programme of research and investigation all over the world. Since 2009 we have been running the increasingly popular CFZ Blog Network, and although there has been an American branch of the CFZ for over ten years now, it is only now that it has a dedicated blog.

This is a cryptid reported from Cameroon.  The Youlou, who live in the mountains, say it is a dry land creature.  Elsewhere it is thought of as water-dwelling.  It is said to have a lion's claws and a horse's body.  Tusks have also been mentioned.  Although the animal is known from hearsay, I can find no recorded sightings.  It is also reported from Chad and the Central African Republic.  Not all reports may refer to the same creature.  With the evidence to hand, one can only make guesses at its nature.
