An enormous grey feline the size of a donkey. It has been spotted in Tanzania in East Africa. Evidence of this creature first arose in the early 1900s. In 1938, William Hichens reported of stories by natives stating that they were attacked by this beast. Fur samples that were caught indicated that this was not a lion or any known animal. Bernard Heuvelmans speculated that the creature may possibly have been a unusual coloured variation and large size of the African golden cat (Profelis aurata).
