Mokele Mbembe, the Mysterious Dinosaur that Didn’t Go Extinct?


Mokele Mbembe is a huge, mysterious creature said to inhabit swamps along the Congo river. The word “Mokele Mbembe” comes from Lingala, meaning “a creature that blocks the flow of water.” The existence and confirmation of this creature has long been debated among mainstream scientists, local Pygmies, creationists and occult zoologists. Mokele Mbembe raises the possibility that they may be a remnant of a similar species of lizard, though this argument has little support from scientists.

It is said to inhabit swamps in the Congo river basin, hiding under the water except when moving and foraging. Legend has it that Mokele Mbembe hated hippos and humans so much that he used his tail to capsize boats and slaughter passengers.


While the chances of prehistoric dinosaurs surviving on earth are virtually nil, don’t forget that there are plenty of unspoiled places in the Congo river valley, most weirdly the number of sightings of Mokele Mbembe has increased since 1910.

The exact sighting time of Mokele Mbembe is not known, but the Pygmies saw it while fishing and boating on the river. Locals often describe Mokele Mbembe as being huge, with a long neck, a crocodile head and snorting nostrils. Some have hard spines that can knock a canoe over. Despite this, few people have reported seeing Mokele Mbembe’s whole body, mostly when it was dark and hard to see, hiding in the water, or running away when someone saw it, and this reinforces the critics’ view that Mokele Mbembe is a lie, a myth and a misperception.

The earliest record of Mokele Mbembe comes from a French missionary who wrote in a book in 1776 that he had seen huge footprints three feet long. Since then, Mokele Mbembe has been witnessed by a number of people. In 1985, another missionary heard local residents mention Mokele Mbembe and even claimed to have eaten a Mokele Mbembe, but everyone who ate it died a short time later, leaving the true shape of Mokele Mbembe a mystery.

In 1913, a German captain made investigation in Cameroon, he claimed that he had seen along the river bank some huge animal footprints, he heard that the animal’s skin is smooth, the whole body is dark brown, size should be bigger than a hippo, elephant size and almost horned, often bite to eat fruit trees, see will ship use tail off, but it is a plant-eating animals, so generally don’t eat people.

There are many records about Mokele Mbembe, but since no one has ever seen it in its full form, there has been a lot of speculation. A statement is the most popular Mokele Mbembe may be mistaken for African elephants, because African elephants also likes to stay in the water, when the elephant in the water, often out of your nose breathing air, so it is easy to make people mistaken for the dinosaur’s neck, coupled with the description of dinosaur form and the elephant similar, this is accepted by many people, but the truth is still unknown.

Carl Hagenbeck may be the first man to lead an exhaustive search for the so-called ancient monsters, but since his story became public more and more explorers have gone deep into the forests of South Africa in search of these creatures. Although by the year 2011, people in South Africa regions for at least 50 times explore these biological activities, but the information on these creatures have been up to just blurred picture (below), as well as a variety of witness oral description, such as the early 1960 s is a missionary claimed that saw a group of Pygmies kill a Mokele Mbembe.

It has also been suggested that if Mokele Mbembe were a dinosaur and had lived in the Congo river for tens of millions of years, their population would have been huge, but it is a pity that no remains of Mokele Mbembe have been found to this day.

So the signs are that Mokele Mbembe and other dinosaurs may not have existed at all. Therefore, there are indications that Mokele Mbembe and other dinosaurs may not exist at all. After all, as people’s explorations increase, they still can’t find these creatures, and the hope that they can finally be found is already very embarrassing. However, some people think that Mokele Mbembe has already been found, but once it is published, it will have a great impact on the existing worldview of human beings, so even if there are creatures like Mokele Mbembe in the world, it will still not be recognized.
