The M'kuoo M'bemboo is a dinosaur or reptilian creature found in west Cameroon, in Africa.
Rendering of a Moeritherium, an extinct aquatic mammal of North and West Africa
Reported only once, it is apparently known to the local peoples, who named it. Despite the similar-sounding names, this is not just another local name for the Mokele Mbembe. The creatures are drastically different.
The herbivorous creature is beyond massive, with a head alone that is described as the size of a full grown hippopotamus. It has a 'gurgling' roar, is described as shiny black. The head is compared to that of a seal, but 'flattened from above to below'. It appears to be at least semi-aquatic, as the one report described it exiting an aquatic cave and lunging out of the water.
Supposedly, it attacks hippos, but it does not eat them. This would explain why no hippos live in the region.
It could be possible that a Herbivorous species of Marine reptile or mammal found itself with in the African Cameroon or more likely a seal or even a large Crocodile. It can also possibly yet unlikely be an extinct Pyrotherium or Moeritherium that somehow survived for 66 million years or shorter in Cameroon.
In 1977, amateur photographer Sandra Mansi released a photograph that appeared to show a plesiosaur-like body and neck sticking out of the lake. Mansi later showed the photo, which is similar to the famous "Surgeon's photo" of the Loch Ness Monster, to Joseph W. Zarzynski. The entire bay of the lake where the photograph reportedly was taken is no deeper than 14 feet (4.3 m). According to Joe Nickell, there are few explanations for how a giant creature could swim, let alone hide, in such shallow water. Furthermore, it has been suggested that the object in the photograph could possibly be a rising tree trunk or log. Rotting trees often gather gas in the process of decay, and sometimes rise to the water's surface at considerable speed.
Champ reportedly can be seen in a video taken by fishermen Dick Affolter and his stepson Pete Bodette in the of 2005. Close examination of the images may be interpreted either as a head and neck of a plesiosaur-like animal and even an open mouth in one frame and a closed mouth in another; or as a fish or eel. Although two retired FBI forensic image analysts, who reviewed the tape, said it appears authentic and un-manipulated, one of them added that "there's no place in there that I can actually see an animal or any other object on the surface". One piece of evidence, though not a "sighting" per se, is the recording of echolocation from within the lake by the Fauna Communications Research Institute in 2003, working as part of a Discovery Channel program. The group has concluded that the sounds they have recorded are similar to that of a Beluga Whale or perhaps an Orca, but not of a known animal, and no dolphin or whale species have been previously known to live in the lake.

Appearance: A human-sized bird with a woman's face
Lore: Lechuza are women who have sold their souls to the devil in exchange for magical powers. At night, they transform into monsters with a bird's body and a woman's face, similar to depictions of harpies in Greek mythology. They then fly through the night in search of prey.
When a Lechuza finds her target she will perch in a location where she can't easily be seen and then will make either strange whistles or the sound of an infant crying. Anyone who attempts to determine where the sound is coming from is at risk of becoming Lechuza's dinner. Lechuza will then swoop down and carry off the confused and horrified individual.
In some versions of the story, the Lechuza is the spirit of a witch who was murdered by locals. Her spirit returns in the form of the bird-monster to get revenge. In other tales, the Lechuza is the vengeful spirit of a woman who has returned from the grave to torment the living and to seek revenge.
In modern times, most reported run-ins with the witch-bird involve her swooping down at cars driving deserted roads at night.
Powers: As a witch, Lechuza possesses supernatural powers. One of the powers of the Lechuza is to summon storms. Sightings of Lechuza are believed to coincide with thunderstorms. Lechuza possess the power to shape-shift into bird-monsters at night. Lechuza also possess the ability to disguise their voices to appear as if it is the cries of an infant in order to draw it's human prey closer. Finally, it is believed that hearing the cry of the Lechuza is an omen that someone in the household will die, a trait more commonly found in tales of the banshee. Lechuza are immune to weapons and bullets and possibly are immortal.
Defense Against Lechuza: Lechuza fear salt. Upon hearing the call of a Lechuza one should immediately began cussing her out. Doing so will drive her away. Don't go outside to investigate hearing a strange whistle sound or the sound of a baby crying.
