Living Dinosaurs In Wikileaks Video And The Likouala Swamp In The Congo

All over the world there are rumors and stories of living dinosaurs.  One of the key areas is the  Likouala swamp region of the Congo which is supposed to be home to the Mokele-mbembe may also contain another dinosaurian: the Emela-ntouka (literally “killer of elephants”). This stout rhinoceros-like creature is reputed to have a penchant for killing elephants with its single horn.

Mokèlé-mbmbé, meaning “one who stops the flow of rivers” in the Lingala language is a legendary water-dwelling creature of Congo River basin folklore, sometimes described as living creature, sometimes as a spirit, and loosely analogous to the Loch Ness Monster in Western culture. It is claimed to be a sauropod by some cryptozoologists.
Expeditions mounted in the hope of finding evidence of the Mokèlé-mbèmbé have failed, and the subject has been covered in a number of books and by a number of television documentaries. According to skeptic Robert T. Carroll, “Reports of the Mokèlé-mbèmbé have been circulating for the past two hundred years, yet no one has photographed the creature or produced any physical evidence of its existence.” The Mokèlé-mbèmbé and its associated folklore also appear in several works of fiction and popular culture.

Emela-ntouka

The Emela-ntouka is an African legendary creature in the mythology of the Pygmy tribes, and a cryptid purported to live in Central Africa. Its name means “killer of the elephants” in the Lingala language. In other languages it is known as the Aseka-moke, Njago-gunda, Ngamba-namae, Chipekwe or Irizima.

Lucien Blancou, chief game inspector in French Equatorial Africa in the 1950′s wrote of a ferocious creature in the Congo, larger than a buffalo, that was considered the most dangerous animal by the Kelle pygmies. “…the presence of a beast which sometimes disembowels elephants is also known, but it does not seem to be prevalent there now as in the preceding districts. A specimen was supposed to have been killed twenty years ago at Dongou, but on the left of the Ubangi and in the Belgian Congo.” (translated by Heuvelmans, Bernard, On the Track of Unknown Animals, 1959.)

Mahamba is a cryptid rumoured to lurk in the People’s Republic of the Congo, around the Lake Likouala swamp region. It is purported to be an enormous crocodile; reaching lengths of up to 50 feet (15 m). Some have speculated that it is a freshwater relic of the mosasaurs  huge, sea-dwelling lizards which were presumed extinct by the end of the Cretaceous period.

The Bobangi aboriginals have proclaimed this animal to be unlike any other they have seen, and have only compared it to other creatures, such as aNkoli (the Bobangi word for crocodile) or the legendary Nguma-monene for the sake of comparison. It is also been reported to attack and devour rafts and canoes

Two testimonials of sightings of Nguma-monene exist that were done near the Dongu-Mataba (tributary of the Ubangi River) in the Republic of the Congo. The first was done in 1961; the second ten years later in 1971 by pastor Joseph Ellis. He estimated the length of the (visible) tailpart as 10 meters long (equal to his dugout, no neck or head could be seen), and a diameter of 0.5 to 1 meter. Its color was tending to greyish-brown. When back in the village, it appeared that the subject was taboo. The above and other sightings were gathered by University of Chicago biologist Roy P. Mackal, who led two expeditions to the Likouala swamps in the Republic of Congo, while searching for the Mokele-mbembe

Missionary Cal Bombay and his wife told Roy P. MacKal, the author of “A Living Dinosaur” that they watched a creature like thisthe one picture below,  supposedly a Nguma-monene,  for 15 minutes in Kenya. The missionary said the plates were bigger than those in the drawing shown here.

These alleged living dinosaurs  were part of a Wikileaks release according to YouTube user WeirdWildSpooky·

“The Chinese have had legends for thousands of years of flying reptiles called dragons, and flying snakes as well- something apparently different. Flying reptile dragon images in China are so prevalent, they can easily be considered amongst the most common of motifs. Are they stylized depictions of real flying animals? The ancient Chinese certainly thought they were,” says David Hatcher Childress.

“Similarly, most countries of Europe and the Mediterranean have myths and legends of heroes battling flying reptiles-or dragons. Often depicted as winged snakes or winged alligators, these dragons were a common image as well, and are still used in the crests of royal families. Did dragons-flying reptiles-pterodactyls-still exist in small numbers, even up to the Middle Ages?,” he adds.

According to one news report at Modern Living Pterodactyls, short-tailed featherless creatures fly over a valley, in daylight, deep in the interior of New Britain Island, Papua New Guinea. This is a different kind of pterosaur than was seen by the American World War II veteran Duane Hodgkinson, in 1944. Umboi Island Expedition Of the two expeditions on Umboi Island in 2004, the first one was led by the American cryptozoologist Jonathan Whitcomb. He later wrote a scientific paper on apparent living pterosaurs in Papua New Guinea. The report was published in a peer-reviewed journal of science

Many states of the U.S.A. have eyewitnesses of flying pterodactyls, more properly called “pterosaurs.” Lately Georgia has been a hot spot state for sightings, to be precise in Towns County and in Loganville, according to the authors at Live Pterodactyl Blog.
Other areas in Georgia where people have seen the flying creatures in recent years include the towns of Canton, Lithonia, and Franklin, and a highway between Winder and Athens.
Sighting in Franklin, Georgia
A lady and her two sons were driving on Highway 27, at about 8:15 am, on July 18, 2012, when they saw a “flyin dinosaur.” After yelling at her boys to look at it, she heard confirmation from her older son: It was a pterodactyl. As it glided across the road, they could see that it had a long tail.
Sighting in Northern Georgia
In Towns County, northern Georgia, David Schroder has had two sightings within the past few years. His July 2010 encounter was with two flying creatures with wingspans possibly as great at twenty feet. The man’s wife also witnessed them.

A pterosaur sighting need not be in a remote tropical rain forest. According to a recent analysis, by cryptozoologist Jonathan Whitcomb, of 128 sighting reports, 75% of the reported encounters with apparent pterosaurs were in the United States of America, and 5% were in Papua New Guinea. This does not mean that many more of the flying creatures live in the USA; many more Americans have easy access to the internet and email, and are proficient in English, compared with third-world countries like Papua New Guinea.

More on the Emela-ntouka

The Emela-ntouka is claimed to be around the size of an African Bush Elephant, brownish to gray in color, with a heavy tail, and with a body of similar shape and appearance to a rhinoceros, including one long horn on its snout. Keeping its massive bulky body above ground level supposedly requires four short, stump-like legs. It is described as having no frills or ridges along the neck. The animal is alleged to be semi-aquatic and feed on Malombo and other leafy plants. The Emela-ntouka is claimed to utter a vocalization, described as a snort, rumble or growl.

Horn

The structure of its horn is debated among writers on the subject.[citation needed] The debate runs thus: if the “horn” is ivory, then it would be a tusk (tooth) and not a horn at all. Some rhinoceroses do have tusks, especially the Asiatic one-horned kinds; yet these are not known to inhabit Africa. If the horn is made of bone, then the creature is a reptile, as many fossil reptile groups, such as the ceratopsians, had horns made of bone. Finally, the horn could be made of keratin, as are the horns of African rhinos. However, without a specimen to examine, any attempt to classify the emela-ntouka by this method can only be speculative.

Home

This cryptid is alleged to mainly inhabit the vast shallow waters in the swamps and lakes of the Congo River basin, especially in the Likouala swamps in the Republic of the Congo, and possibly Cameroon. It is also said to inhabit Lake Bangweulu in Zambia. They are claimed to be solitary, herbivorous animals. The inhabitants of the area are alleged to treat the creature with great fear.

History

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DksjLHyr7tw?feature=player_detailpage&wmode=transparent]

J.E. Hughes published his book Eighteen Years on Lake Bangweulu in 1933, in which he reported that an animal that fits the description of an Emela-Ntouka (although not referred to by this name) was slaughtered by Wa-Ushi tribesmen, along the shores of the Luapula River, which connects Lake Bangweulu to Lake Mweru.

The Emela-Ntouka was mentioned by name for the first time in 1954, in an article in the journal Mammalia, authored by former Likouala game inspector Lucien Blancou. He stated the Emela-Ntouka was “larger than a buffalo” and dwelled throughout the Likouala swamps. It was also Blancou who first mentioned the fact that an Emela-Ntouka kills elephants, buffalos or hippos when disturbed, much like the Mokele-mbembe’s allegedly renowned hatred for hippos. While both animals are supposedly herbivorous, they also supposedly share a fierce sense of territoriality, and it is for this reason the pygmies are claimed to “fear it more than any other dangerous animal”. In about 1930, an Emela-Ntouka was supposedly killed near Dongou.

Later evidence was contributed by Dr. Roy P. Mackal, who led two expeditions into the Congo in 1980 and 1981. He gathered details on various other cryptids. 1987 saw the publication of Mackal’s book, A Living Dinosaur, wherein he summarized the expeditions.

A planned season two episode of the New Zealand documentary World Mysteries included an interview with a man who claimed to have encountered a dead Emela-Ntouka. He claimed to still possess the animal’s horn, which he removed from the body. The episode was filmed but never aired.

Possible explanations

A popular speculation is that the mythical monster is in fact a relict ceratopsian. Proponents of this idea believe that the Republic of the Congo is home to many prehistoric animals such as living dinosaurs, including the Mokele mbembe and Mbielu-Mbielu-Mbielu (possibly sauropod or stegosaur dinosaurs).

In 1981, Dr. Roy Mackal while searching the Congo for the Mokele-mbembe, collected accounts of the Emela-ntouka. Mackal initially considered that Emela-ntouka might be a Monoclonius, or a Centrosaurus, both ceratopsians. As such, it might be related to the Ngoubou, which might be a six-horned Styracosaurus. However, Mackal also noted the pygmies did not report a neck frill, which he would have expected on a ceratopsian. Furthermore, the Ceratopsia are absent from Africa’s fossil record. Author Loren Coleman suggested that the Emela-Ntouka is not saurian, but a new species of semi-aquatic rhinoceros

Ceratopsia or Ceratopia   is a group of herbivorous, beaked dinosaurs that thrived in what are now North America, Europe, and Asia, during the Cretaceous Period, although ancestral forms lived earlier, in the Jurassic. The earliest known ceratopsian, Yinlong downsi, lived between 161.2 and 155.7 million years ago. The last ceratopsian species became extinct in the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event, 65.5 million years ago

Earth in 2118 And He’s on CIA mission

A SPOOKY image that claims to show what the world will look like in the year 2118 have surfaced on YouTube after an interview with a time traveller who says he’s visited Earth more than 100 years into the future.

Alexander Smith, an elderly gentleman who travelled from the year 1981, indicates he has seen what the future looks like because he was involved in a secretive CIA experiment.

In a video on YouTube, the former secret service operative admits he is risking his life by talking about his time travel because the CIA “are looking for me and I am living in hiding”.

He said: “I visited the year 2118 as part of a top secret CIA mission.

“As to my knowledge, it was one of the first times that time travel had been successfully completed.

“I went to the future and then back to the past.“This all happened in the year 1981.”Later in the video, the man offered proof of his venture to the future to ease the concerns of those who did not believe his tale.Reaching into the pocket of his jacket the man then pulled out a picture aimed at confirming his journey.He said: “I do have something to show you today.

“This picture was taken in the year 2118.

“This picture was the city I walked in.

“I’ll never forget when I took that picture.

“It was right outside the city, before I had walked into it.”

The blurry picture appears to show a number of tall green buildings, each one oddly shaped.

Far from being a crowded city like London or New York, the buildings in the photo seem to be spaciously spread out.However, little more can be deciphered from the poor quality photo.The mysterious Mr Smith added: “I chose to wait until now to reveal that picture to you because I didn’t know if the world was ready to see it.“That was a picture from the future which I was able to take back.“There was only a minor amount of distortion on it that was caused by the time travelling process.”

2118 revealed

“The Government confiscated the original photo, but before they took it from me, I did manage to make the copy I held before you.”

Detailing what the world will look like in the next century the old man also explained how humans will have received visits from aliens, speak a new language and climate change will get much worse.

The time traveller said: “Aliens do visit us, there are intelligent extraterrestrials that do come to earth.

“They visit first in the mid 21st century.”

Spate of UFO sightings reported near air field base

A GLUT of supposed UFO sightings near a military base in the US has alien enthusiasts concerned extraterrestrials are monitoring our planet’s war preparations.

UFOs have been spotted near Malmstrom Air Force Base

Alien hunters believe that extraterrestrials are watching the goings on at the Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana after a spate of sightings there.

The most recent sighting of an unidentified space craft came on January 24, when a black object, which was reportedly over “half an acre” in size was spotted near the base.

According to website UFO Hunters – which monitors and collects records of sightings – there was a power outage in the region for around 10 minutes at the same time as the sighting.

The website also shows there have been close to 20 sightings within the past decade, making it a true hotspot for UFO activity.

A spate of UFOs have been spotted near Malmstrom

However, sightings there stretch back much longer than the last 10 years.

One former employee at the Malmstrom Air Force Base claims a UFO shut down 10 missiles in 1967.

Capt Robert Salas said: “I was on duty when an object came over and hovered directly over the site.

“The missiles shut down – 10 Minuteman missiles. And the same thing happened at another site a week later. There’s a strong interest in our missiles by these objects, wherever they come from. I personally think they’re not from planet Earth.”

UFO hunters believe aliens are monitoring military bases in the US.

A recent map from the US-based National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) was released which shows UFO sightings across the States.

However, it has been suggested the most dense areas for sightings coincide with US military installations.

Alex Hollings, a retired US duty marine, now writes for Sofrep.com, a news and intelligence service provided by former special operations veterans.

He wrote: “When laying that same map of reported UFO sightings over a US map showing the locations of all military installations, an interesting trend starts to emerge.

“Many of the regions that seem to show a high frequency of UFO reports coincide with the locations of military installations.

“For the conspiracy minded, this might mean our alien visitors have taken a particular interest in what our military is up to.

“Others might be inclined to conclude many of these supposed UFO sightings may be nothing more than misidentified military aircraft.”

‘Aliens will return to Earth within 20 years’, Chariots of the Gods author predicts

Erich Von Daniken the author of Chariots of the Gods, was presented with the Stella Citizen Award by Ancient Aliens TV regular Giorgio A. Tsoukalos, at the Princess Anne Theatre, Bafta, London last month.

In a two hour presentation Erich used video clips, computer animations, slides and diagrams to back-up his claim that thousands of years ago there was a war in heaven. He said,

‘The E.T.’s know about us because we are part of their DNA. The Bible speaks of the daughters of men having intercourse with these visitors, and many worldwide myths and legends repeat the same story. These stories always say the E.T.s will return to us.’

Erich thinks this could be in the next twenty years.

The ‘Erich Von Daniken Legacy Night’ celebrated 50 years of his groundbreaking book that dramatically claimed humanoid extraterrestrials visited us in our distant past and caused the building of the Great Pyramids, Stonehenge, the Nazca lines, Stone Age cave paintings, Mexican temples and in more recent times UFO sightings and crop circles.

Evidence of this is contained in ancient Indian religious texts as well as in the Christian Bible, Daniken claims. Erich emphasised that their concept of heaven is really a reference to outer space, so the angels were E.T. visitors rather than spiritual creatures.

Visions by the likes of Ezekiel and Enoch strongly suggest they saw E.T. shuttlecraft and spaceships. After telling NASA scientists at a secret meeting about Ezekiel’s vision, Erich claims they developed a multi-directional wheel from the Biblical descriptions and went on to patent the idea.

After his remarkable presentation he was interviewed on stage, where he confessed that he had always had an enquiring mind and was intrigued by the thought of alien visitors at an early age. He went on to work in the leisure and hotel industry, and worked as a hotel manager whilst writing Chariots of the Gods.

On its publication in the late 1960s it achieved worldwide success, and his books have now chalked up more than 70 million sales. They have inspired Hollywood blockbuster movies, TV series like The X-Files and numerous documentaries expounding his ideas and have become a cultural phenomenon far beyond his greatest expectations.
