Episode 213: Ninki Nanka / Kikiyoun

Oct 15, 2008 Season 2 Episode 13

Gambia: Ninki Nanka -- Ninki Nanka is a legendary creature based in West African folklore. Descriptions of the creature vary, but most contend that the animal is reptilian and possibly dragon-like. According to tradition, the Ninki Nanka lives in the swamps of West Africa. The animal is said to be extremely large and dangerous. It is believed that when children disobey their parents and go into the swamp, the Ninki Nanka will take them away. This creature's tales were never recorded but the story of it has spread from tribe to tribe all over Africa. A group of "dragon hunters" from the Centre for Fortean Zoology (CFZ) went to Gambia in the summer of 2006 to investigate the Ninki Nanka and take testimony from those who have seen the mythical creature. Gambia: Kikiyoun -- One of the most terrifying and least seen of all the forest creatures is the Kikiyoun. Its very name can conjure a look of terror. It is described as resembling a large owl, especially its head. It has a large beak and raking talons on its arms and feet. In many respects it is a mixture of bird and human. The Bambara people say it has a huge pair of feathered wings that grow from its back. The shoulder joint, which is tipped with a sharp spur, serves as a weapon if its talons fail. It has razor sharp talons, much like those of a large owl, at the end of muscled legs.

By this time the tourism department of the nearby city of Ibusuki had offered a reward of 100,000 Yen to anyone who could produce a photo of Issie. Matsuhara submitted his photo for their consideration and the tourism department officials were impressed enough to award Matsuhara the prize money. Iceland, Elves -- According to the latest reports, the possible existence of Icelandic elves is the main reason many of the roads in the country were rerouted to avoid disturbing rocks where the fantastic creatures possibly live. Most residents polled are not willing to rule out their existence. Many children told their parents about the little inhabitants of the rocks, but more adults have also stated their encounter with elves, as well.

Episode 210: Ahool / Pinatubo Monster

Sep 24, 2008 Season 2 Episode 10

Indonesia: Java -- According to mainstream science, the world's biggest bat is the Bismarck flying fox, an animal that never gets larger than six feet from wingtip to wingtip. According to cryptozoology, mainstream scientists might be wrong. Many sightings from seemingly reliable people suggest that this might not be the case. The island of Java, not very far from the Bismarck flying fox's home of New Guinea, is supposed to harbor a bat with a twelve-foot wingspan called the Ahool. Its cries sound like "A-hool" and it eats fish. It has gray fur and a flattened face with black eyes. Its head resembles a monkey's head. This creature is not attributed with supernatural powers, and seems like such a plausible animal that it has drawn the attention of naturalists. The Philippines: Pinatubo Monsters -- Reports coming out of the Philippines describe five "huge, black creatures" swimming in the Tikis River, near the former mining village of Buhawen, scaring Aeta families six years ago. Aeta natives first spotted the 7-foot long mysterious creature in 2001, after mistaking it for floating logs. The strange creatures have been seen swimming in the river below Labuan, which is enclosed by tall, thick bushes. Since the monsters' heads and tails were not seen, no one could venture what these locally named "Pinatubo Monsters" could be. Two tribal leaders were requesting that "biasang tau 'scientists'" come and assist them with the mystery surrounding what the creatures might be. At last word, no scientists have volunteered to go look and reports of the huge creatures continue to emerge.
