According to local legend, a modern-day African dinosaur called the Mokele-Mbembe lurks in the murky waters of the Congo Basin rainforest. This elephant-sized version of Diplodocus kills all hippos, elephants, and humans that invade its territory in spooky 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.
Relive these exciting expeditions, take a close look at the evidence the dinosaur hunters have collected, and decide whether Mokele-Mbembe is a real flesh-and-blood animal or just a figment of the imagination.
