The Mbielu-Mbielu-Mbielu is a cryptid reported from the Likouala Region of the Republic of the Congo.


The Mbielu-Mbielu-Mbielu is described as "the animal with planks growing out of its back". The animal appears to be aquatic and herbivorous, and has mostly green algal growth covering the "planks".


Only a few claimed sightings have been reported, at the villages of Bounila and Ebolo, which were collected by the cryptozoologist Roy Mackal. No physical evidence for the creature has been uncovered.

Theories about origin and existence

Mackal noted that the animal's triangular- or diamond-shaped planks or ridges are similar (but larger) than those of the Nguma-monene, although creature is not larger overall. Other cryptozoologists suggest one of the Stegosauridae, most likely a Kentrosaurus.
