    The Nandi Bear:Africa's brain eating bruin

    This creature is really grizzly

    http://www.cryptozoology.com/cryptids/nandi_bear.php


    "What the Abominable Snowman is to Asia, or the great Sea Serpent is to the oceans, the Nandi Bear is to Africa. It is one of the most notorious of those legendary beasts which have, so far, eluded capture and the collector's rifle."
    - Frank W. Lane
    Called the most ferocious of African mystery beasts, the Nandi Bear evokes cries of horror in both natives and Westerners alike. Known throughout East Africa as duba, kerit, chimisit, kikambangwe, vere, sabrookoo, and many others. There are too many reports to simply write it off as widespread myth. The sightings of the Nandi Bear by Westerners backs up the reality of the beast. Officially there are no members of the bear family in Africa in modern times, but reports of bears or bear-like creatures are nothing new to Africa. Herodotus, Pliny the elder and other writers from ancient times placed bears in Africa. More recently, Dr. O. Dapper wrote in 1668 that "squirrels with tails much larger than those in Europe, bears, wild cats, and very venomous vipers..." all inhabited the Congo.

    There is a set of megafauna of the ancient world that was hunted to extinction, surviving only in myth. This is plausibly the "Atlas bear," a bear that was native to Africa. Another such species is the "aurochs," thought to be the wild ancestors of oxen, translated as "unicorns" in the KJV bible.
