The Mbielu-Mbielu-Mbielu is a cryptid reported from the Likouala Region of the Republic of the Congo. Only a few claimed sightings have been reported, at the villages of Bounila and Ebolo, which were collected by the cryptozoologist Roy Mackal.[1] No physical evidence for the creature exists.

Apparently herbivorous, it is described as "the animal with planks growing out of its back" - which has led some writers on the subject to suggest one of the Stegosauridae, most likely a Kentrosaurus. The animal appears to be aquatic,[2] and has mostly green algal growth covering the "planks".
