The Mbielu-Mbielu-Mbielu is a cryptid reported from the Likouala Region of theRepublic of the Congo. Only a few claimed sightings have been reported, at the villages of Bounila and Ebolo, which were collected by the cryptozoologist Roy Mackal.[1] No physical evidence for the creature exists.

Apparently herbivorous, it is described as "the animal with planks growing out of its back" - which has led some writers on the subject to suggest one of the Stegosauridae, most likely a Kentrosaurus. The animal appears to be aquatic,[2] and has mostly green algal growth covering the "planks".

Unknown Dinosaur-like animal of Central 

Etymology: Possibly Lingala (Bantu).

Physical description: Has large “planks” growing 
out of its back, which is covered with green, 
algal growth.

Behavior: Almost always seen in water with its 
back protruding. Active in the late afternoon.

Distribution: Likouala River, Republic of the 

Significant sightings: A Mbielu-mbielu-mbielu 
was seen near Epéna at a place called Ikekesse. 
Green vegetable growth was visible on its back 
as it came out of the water.

Odette Gesonget, a woman of Bouanila, Republic 
of the Congo, selected a picture of a 
Stegosaurus from books provided by Roy Mackal 
in 1980 as an animal that her parents had told 
her about.

Possible explanation: A surviving stegosaur, a 
group of dinosaurs best known from the Late 
Jurassic, 150 million years ago, suggested by 
Roy Mackal. An African fossil genus, the 20- 
foot Kentrosaurus, has been found in abundance 
in the Tendaguru beds of Tanzania and had six 
pairs of erect plates along the neck and upper 
back, followed by three pairs of flat spines and 
five pairs of large spines on the tail.
