Destination TruthCreatures

The Tokeloshe is South Africa's version of the boogeyman. It is said to be a short, furry, demonic creature that exists partially in a mystical realm, giving it the ability to appear in spirit form.

The creature is feared in the Zulu-dominated rural areas of South Africa, where it has been described as having an appetite for sour milk. It also is said to have an appetite for those who use "snuff," a tobacco-infused powder inhaled through the nasal passages.

Legend has it that attacks by the Tokeloshe can be thwarted by placing bricks under the corners of one's bed, thus raising it to a height the small beast can't reach.
