A man-eating beast that had the head of a hare with human ears and a horses mane. It had the feet of a badger with a long thin body and tail. It originates form the legends of India and Africa and it is said to be a nocturnal and secretive creature. It feeds on the corpses of dead people and does not attack or kill anything alive.. Its body is 2-3ft in length. Africans reported that when the Rompo found a dead body, it did not immediately seize the body but would circulate it many times to make sure it was safe to approach. When the Rompo is cornered or put into a state of fright its skin will change to the colour of what it sees. Among trees and shrubs, the Rompo’s skin becomes green.
