Summary

According to local legend, a modern-day African dinosaur called Mokele-mbembe lurks in the murky waters of the Congo Basin rainforest. This elephant-sized version of Diplodocus kills hippos, elephants, and humans that invade its territory in Lake Tele and vine-choked Likouala Swamp. Many cryptozoological expeditions have been conducted in this inhospitable jungle with the sole purpose of finding a living, breathing specimen of a type of animal that should have gone extinct 65 million years ago. In Mokele-mbembe: Fact or Fiction?, take a look at the evidence dinosaur hunters have collected, and decide whether Mokele-mbembe is a real animal or just a figment of the imagination.
