The mokèlé-mbèmbé is the name given a large creature reported to live in the lakes and swamps of the Congo River basin. The monster is thought to be a sea-dweller, though it can also move inland. Fishermen who inhabit the area often run from waters and land near the water's edge in fear of the creature, describing its ability to kill humans. Mokèlé-mbèmbé means "one who stops the flow of rivers." Mokèlé-mbèmbé is generally described as a beast about as large as an elephant, with a long flexible neck and with a tail similar to an alligator's.
Lake Tele is a freshwater lake located in the Congolese jungle. It has often been mentioned as the home of the Mokele mbembe, and allegedly is the spot where pygmies killed and ate one of the creatures.
