Nandi Bear

The Nandi Bear is a cryptid, or unconfirmed animal, reported to live in East Africa. It takes its name from the Nandi people who live in western Kenya, in the area the Nandi Bear is reported from. It is also known as Chemosit, Kerit, Ngoloko, or Duba (which derives from dubb or dubbha, the Arabic words for 'bear' and 'hyena' respectively.)

Frank W. Lane wrote, "What the Abominable Snowman is to Asia, or the great Sea Serpent is to the oceans, the Nandi Bear is to Africa. It is one of the most notorious of those legendary beasts which have, so far, eluded capture and the collector's rifle."
