K is for Kholomodumo


     A Kholomodumo is a mythological creature in the Sotho people of the South Africa's creation myth story. It is a huge beast with really sharp teeth and a main of black hair on it's back. The story goes that the beast devoured all of the people of earth and a few animals, except for one human woman. The woman had twins who later, with the help of a wolf, killed the monster by slitting it's belly open, freeing the captured humans and the animals. This repopulated the world and saved the day.
