When I was about 11 or so, my mom bought the TIME LIFE BOOKS MYSTERIES OF THE UNKNOWN collection. I claimed the UFO MYSTERIES for my library. But there was another (the title eludes me) that was all about sea monsters, giants, little people and flying creatures and that was when my sister and I discovered the MOKELE MBEMBE. We prided ourselves on getting the pronunciation right and we watched every program we could on the subject. We were both convinced that it was a brontosaurus or a plesiosaur. I wanted to grow up, become and explorer and enter the African Congo in search of the beast. I still wonder what it might be, and I still believe in it...I just wish I could check it out for myself.
