A group of "dragon hunters" from the Centre for Fortean Zoology went to Gambia in the summer of 2006 to investigate the Ninki Nanka and take testimony from those who have seen the creature. One interviewee who claimed to have had an encounter with a Ninki Nanka said it looked similar to a Chinese dragon.
Then, meet one of the most terrifying and least-seen forest creatures: the Kikiyaon. Its very name can conjure a look of terror. It is described as resembling a large owl of human proportions. It has a large beak and raking talons on its arms and feet. In many respects it is a mixture of bird and human. The Bambara people say it has a huge pair of feathered wings that grow from its back. Sharp shoulder spurs serve as weapons if its razor-sharp claws fail. The Kikiyaon is said to be covered in short greenish-gray hair, and some reports speak of a short tufted tail.
Josh and the team decide to try a touristy Vampire haunted house before the investigation and realize sometimes that's scarier than the real thing.
