Beast Hunter: Mokele-Mbembe Encounter
Pat talks with a local man about his experience with Mokele-Mbembe.
I was there in 2003 and led the 2004 Mokele mbembe expedition - I assure you they are there and I know where they are, but it is a difficult trek. Trying to find them in dry season is useless as they have a hibernation cycle. they are quite active in Sept (mateing season) but this is also rainy season making it impossible to travel. Timeing is everything and a sighting is never guaranteed.
These people have lived in these jungles their whole lives. They know what lives there. Nobody can go over their and tell them mokele mbembe does not exist. These jungles have hardly been explored by outsiders, so its a known fact that many animals are just waiting to be discovered. Its pretty obvious that the people who live there already know about animals that we don't know of, so people who don't live there can't tell them what is real and what is fake about there jungles. They know these jungle like the back of there hands, but the rest of the world have hardly explored these jungles. I doubt that they are lying, because in the end they have lived there there whole lives, and so have there parents, grandparents, and Great grandparents, but we 'outsiders' hardly know anything about these jungles.
