The Mokele-mbembe is said to be the existing sauropod dinosaur of Congo in central Africa, said to be extinct for 60 million years. The grey-skinned animal has been described as the size of a hippopotamus up to well over 30 feet. The Mokele-mbembe has an exceptionally long neck and a lengthy tail. It is sometimes described as having a tooth or tusk and red eyes. It has four legs and is claw-footed. It's primary food is said to be landolphia fruit.
The Mokele-mbembe has supposedly been sighted in rivers of deep forest of Congo.

Sightings of these creatures have been reported as early as 1913, when a German expedition into the Likouala region of the Congo reported the finding.
The history of 20th-century expeditions into the Congo region have all generated unconvincing and poor quality pictures of film materials.
