The Sotho people of South African myth tells of Kholomodumo, a gluttonous monster that was one of the first beasts of creation. In time he consumed many animals and all of humanity except one woman. The woman gave birth to two twins and they assisted by a wolf, killed the monster and sliced his stomach open. All the devoured animals were then released and repopulated the world.
