The Mngwa (MIN-gwa), or Nunda, is a big cat said to live in Tanzania. It's name means "the strange one" in Swahili.


The Mngwa is a gray big cat, reported to be about the size of a donkey, with darker gray stripes similar to a tiger. It has razor-sharp claws and large paws, and can kill a human in a single swipe. It may have hairless spots, as many victoms held tufts of gray hair in their hands when found dead.

There had been speculation they were a mutation of the snow leopard, though natives say they are distinctly different than any native big cats.


The Mngwa is said to attack natives.
