  Mokele mbembe   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
The mokele mbembe is a large creature said to live in the lakes and swamps of the Congo River basin, whose existence has long been disputed between mainstream scientists on one side, local Pygmies, creationists and cryptozoologists on the other.
Mokele mbembe means "one who stops the flow of rivers." Mokele mbembe is generally described as a beast about as large as an elephant, with a long flexible neck and with a tail similar to an alligator's.
Mokele mbembes are apparently herbivores, although they have been reported to kill humans and hippopotamuses.

 Le Mokele Mbembe
La tradition locale raconte que, au fond du marécage, vivrait le mokele mbêmbe (" celui qui arrête le cours des rivières "), un énorme animal dont l'existence hypothétique a d'autant plus stimulé l'imagination des voyageurs occidentaux que sa description par les indigènes évoque celle d'un dinosaure.
Là aussi, les indigènes lui racontèrent qu'ils avaient vu un énorme animal amphibie qu'ils appelaient le mokele mbêmbe ; ses campagnes d'exploration furent interrompues par la Première Guerre mondiale et ce n'est qu'en 1948 que fut traduit et publié son rapport d'expédition.
Mesurant, entre 5 et 7 mètres de long, le mokele mbêmbe a fait l'objet de nombreuses spéculations concernant son corps d'éléphant, la finesse et la longueur de son cou et sa petite tête de reptile - une description qui correspond tout à fait à celle d'un petit dinosaure sauropode.
