| #Day18 of #Cryptopedia | Living Dinosaurs # 2 - Emela-ntouka and Mbielu-Mbielu-Mbielu |
These two are "living dinosaurs", aka misidentified or fabricated entities. No nonavian dinosaur remains have been found as recent as 66 million years in the fossil record, and these dinosaurs are clearly described in the retrospective pre-50s inaccurate images of dinosaurs. The horned one was Emela-ntouka, while the stegosaur-type one was Mbielu-Mbielu-Mbielu. I will post more on the topic of living dinosaurs in the future, so look forward to that. Tomorrow's cryptid category is the #PhantomCat or #AlienBigCat trope.

Mbielu-mbielu-mbielu #Mbielumbielumbielu #MerryChristmas #happyholidays #happyxmas The Mbielu-mbielu-mbielu, or “animal with planks growing out of its back”, is a little-known creature restricted to the Likouala-aux-Herbes in the Congo.

It has only ever been seen in the water with only its back protruding, exposing large “planks” with algal growth between them. What it looks like underwater remains unknown. The mbielu-mbielu-mbielu does not show any aggressive behavior and is presumably herbivorous.

The suggestion that it is a late-surviving stegosaur is dubious at best, considering that stegosaurs went extinct long before the end of the Cretaceous (with the possible exception of the disputable Dravidosaurus). References
