The Kasai Rex is an African cryptid that resembles the dinosaur known as Tyrannosaurus. Sightings of the beast began in 1932, and originally described a red-and-black reptile with large fangs that had a long snout, thick legs and stripes. Multiple sightings have occured and a couple of photographs have also surfaced. However, the photos and the eyewitness accounts of this beast are suspect. At least one of the photographs is clearly a forgery made by cutting-and-pasting of pictures, and the accounts are full of improbable details. Also, this cryptid has no unique name in the native language, unlike most other mythical beasts. This indicates that it may be a recent invention and not a real beast at all.
