African Demon

Man-eating Monsters

These creatures are very nasty. If they catch you they will eat you alive. But don’t panic too much because their eyes are in the soles of their feet. They can’t see you during a chase — they have to stop and lie on their backs with their feet in the air. So just keep running. Probably best to zig-zag a lot.
