Villagers in the area claimed that the creature was 20 meters (67 feet) long, had the head of a horse, the lower body of a fish, short legs, and the neck of a snake, and that it shined with a green light at night.

  • Mamlambo es una deidad en la mitología sudafricana y Zulu, la "diosa de los ríos", descrita como una serpiente larga. El mito de Mamlambo se volvió de interés para los cryptozoologos en 1997, cuando algunos periódicos sudafricanos (incluyendo The Star de Johannesburgo and Cape Argus de Ciudad del Cabo) reportaron supuestos avistamientos de un monstruo "reptil gigante" en el Río Mzintlava cerca del Monte Ayliff en Sudafrica. También se reportó que el monstruo había matado a 9 personas. Pobladores del área afirmaron que el monstruo media 20 metros (67 pies) de largo, tenáa cabeza de caballo, la parte inferior de un pez, piernas cortas, y el cuello de serpiente, y que brillaba con una luz verdosa durante la noche: una descripción similar a la de un Elasmosaurus, el cual fue un grupo de reptiles marinos gigantes que vivió y se extinguió con los dinosaurios, o la ballena primitiva Ambulocetus. 9 cuerpos se encontraron en el Río Mzintlava; de acuerdo con la policía, estuvieron en el agua por un tiempo prolongado y sus partes blandas alrededor de sus cabezas y cuello había sido devoradas por los cangrejos; los pobladores, por otro lado, aclamaban que estas mutilaciones habían sido causadas por el habito de Mamlambo de comer caras y "succionar cerebros". Por esta razón se le llama también "el succiona cerebros". (es)

During the period between January and April 1997, as many as nine deaths had been attributed to the Mamlambo. According to police, the victims had been in the water a while and had the soft parts of their heads and neck eaten by crabs; local villagers, on the other hand, claimed that these mutilations had been caused by the Mamlambo's habit of eating faces and brains. For this reason, the Mamlambo is often referred to as "the Brain Sucker". (en)
