A large hairy primate of China, perhaps identical with the dzu-teh. the larger type of yeti. Ivan Sanderson, well-known cryptozoologist, had a correspondent who actually claimed to have wrestled with a tok, which had entered his house by night. This occurred twice, so we may be dealing with two toks here. The animal made no resistance, but hastened away. Its hair was jet-black, its head small, its legs straight and its feet pale.
There is a cryptid wolf supposed to inhabit North America called the waheela. An Indian, when questioned, averred the waheela had but a single enemy, a huge species of lion. It transpired that the Indian did not mean a puma, but rather an actual lion, with a prolific mane. Whether there is a relict population of the American lion, which according to received wisdom is now extinct, or a hitherto unknown species of lion I cannot even guess. My source is H. Peters, Legends of the Nahanni Valley (c2018), pp. 510-11.
