African softshell turtle

The ndendecki (also spelled ndendeki) or dinosaur turtle is a cryptid giant turtle reported from the Likouala aux Herbes River in the Republic of the Congo. Its rounded shell is 12' to 15' in diameter, it is aquatic, and it feeds on organic matter. Roy P. Mackal believed it could be an older, outsized specimen of an African softshell turtle (Trionyx triunguis),[1][2] a theory with which Karl Shuker concurs.[3]
