The koddoelo is a cryptid primate reported from Kenya, described as a giant baboon the size of a man.[1][2] Sightings of the koddoelo, and to a lesser extent of other giant baboons in East Africa, have sometimes been lumped together with the Nandi bear, which is also sometimes speculated to be a giant baboon.[3]



During a 1980 expedition to Kenya's Mount Suswa, a troop of around fifty baboons, around 4'9'' high, were observed.[4]
