The mokele-mbembe, which means "the one who stops the flow of rivers" in the Lingala language, is a dinosaur-like creature that lives in the Congo.
The creature is an animal with a long neck, a long tail, and rounded shape tracks with three claws. Its body size is somewhere between the size of a hippopotamus and an elephant. Its length has been reported to be between 5 to 10 meters (16 to 32 feet). The length of the neck is between 1.6 to 3.3 meters (5 to 10 feet). The length of the tail is between 1.6 to 3.3 meters (5 to 10 feet). There have also been reports of a frill on the back of the head. The frill is like the comb found on a cock (male chicken). There have also been reports of it having a horn on its head.
