Nandi Bear (Cryptid)


Hello guys, I hope you are in the mood for some cryptozoology because today it’s time for a cryptid from the African Continent. This beast is called the Nandi Bear!
The Nandi Bear is a cool cryptid from Africa. It got its name from the Nandi Tribe of Western Kenya. The Nandi tribe has reported seeing this creature for centuries and it continues to this day. Westerners allegedly first encountered this beast in the early part of the 20th Century. The Nandi Bear is said to be a ferocious carnivore with a description that mostly sounds like a hyena or a bear. People still fear this creature and its identity is a mystery.

So what could this creature be? There are many theories one of them is that it is a bear more precisely an Atlas Bear, but the problem with this is that according to modern science there is no bears alive today native to Africa. The last Atlas Bear died in the mid 1800’s. Another theory points at a creature that went extinct even longer ago, the chalicothere. Other theories speculate if the creature could be an unknown type of Hyena or Baboon.

That’s it for the Nandi Bear. If you guys have a cryptid request or something that fits in this blog please don’t hold back. Have a nice day :)
