Gambia: Ninki Nanka — Ninki Nanka is a legendary creature based in West African folklore. Descriptions of the creature vary, but most contend that the animal is reptilian and possibly dragon-like. According to tradition, the Ninki Nanka lives in the swamps of West Africa. The animal is said to be extremely large and dangerous. It is believed that when children disobey their parents and go into the swamp, the Ninki Nanka will take them away. This creature’s tales were never recorded but the story of it has spread from tribe to tribe all over Africa. A group of “dragon hunters” from the Centre for Fortean Zoology (CFZ) went to Gambia in the summer of 2006 to investigate the Ninki Nanka and take testimony from those who have seen the mythical creature. Gambia: Kikiyoun — One of the most terrifying and least seen of all the forest creatures is the Kikiyoun. Its very name can conjure a look of terror. It is described as resembling a large owl, especially its head. It has a large beak and raking talons on its arms and feet. In many respects it is a mixture of bird and human. The Bambara people say it has a huge pair of feathered wings that grow from its back. The shoulder joint, which is tipped with a sharp spur, serves as a weapon if its talons fail. It has razor sharp talons, much like those of a large owl, at the end of muscled legs.
