The creature is amphibious and has three claws on each feet. Its footprints are "about the size of a good frying pan."
It is known that Amali shares its habitat with another aquatic cryptid, Jago-Nini. The Amalis also have a tendency to break ivory trees.
The adventurer Alfred Aloysis "Trader" Horn allegedly discovered a cave painting of an Amali, chiseled it out, and sent it as a gift to the U.S president, Ulysses S. Grant. If true, this incident most likely occurred in the early 1880's, after Grant left office. The "old men'll tell you what their grandfathers saw but they still believe it's there" quote implies that they were last seen in the 17th century. With such a long time since a sighting, It is more than likely that Amalis are now extinct.
