Will you die after seeing the Ninki Nanka?

Short Answer… Yes, the Ninki Nanka supposedly could.

 

The Ninki Nanka is a hybrid creature that is said to inhabit the land near the River Gambia in the West African country of The Gambia. Many people have likened it to the Loch Ness monster of Scotland and other lake monsters from around the world. 

 

It is said to be a black and green snake-like creature with a feathery crest, measuring about 50 metres long. It is also said to have the neck of a giraffe or a crocodile and the body of a hippo. It is predominantly a water beast but is not averse to moving on land if the need arises.

 

Seeing the Ninki Nanka almost is a guarantee of death or a serious illness followed by death. Some accounts also claim that death is assured if you lock eyes with the creature and this can occur almost immediately to a few weeks apart.

 

The only thing that can kill the Ninki Nanka is its own reflection and that is why the travellers along the River Gambia always carry a mirror on their person. Even on sighting expeditions the explorers are encouraged to not lock eyes with the beast and use the mirror at the slightest doubt of the sighting.
