Zambezi River Monster

Lindsay Selby delves into the world of yet another weird beast of the water:

"The Nyaminyami is a river creature who lived in the Zambezi River and controlled the life in and on the river. It is worshiped by the Tonga people. Said to be a dragon like creature with a snake's torso and the head of a fish. The tonga claim sightings of this creature in the Kariba lake. The lake is known for the tigerfish that dwell in it’s waters but there are over 40 fish species that live in the lake including nkupe, chessa, bottlenose, vundu, barbell and several types of bream. So the waters are very fertile and probably enough to feed a dragon!"
