Supposed evidence of the creature feasting on a rhino carcass, though recent examination may prove the photo false.

Kasai Rex is a Theropod said living in Africa. It was is reportibly sighted by John Johnson.


In 1932 John Jonhson and observant were traviling in the Kasai Valley. Encountering a rhinoceros and trying to pass whithout it seeing them, a large creature came out of the clearing and attacked the rhinoceros, causing Johnson to faint. During this, the servant fled. When Johnson woke up, he says the creature attaking the rhino. He said it was reddish in color with blackish stripes, a long snout, nimerous teeth, and 13 meters (about 43 feet) long, and thick legs bulit for speed. He likely overexaceratied the size. Kasai Rex is likely Carcharodontosaurus or a small kind of Allosaur, depending on the accuracy of the size.


Kasai Rex was reported in the jungles of in Kasai Valley, from where Kasai Rex's name comes from. Kasai Valley is in what is now the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Africa.


Kasai Rex, if real, is thought to be either a large moniter lizard or a theropod dinosaur. What species is unclear. It may be an Allosauroidea, Afrovenator or Carcharodontosaurus; both are native to Africa. It may also be a Tyranosaur that has somehow entered the continent.

However, it is almost certainly a hoax. The fake picture above, as well as the near-identical consistencies between the two reports, suggests that this cryptid was just a hoax.
