Khodumodumo (from Sesotho, archaic: translation given as "gaping-mouthed-bush-monster") is an appellation for a cryptid said to dwell in the former provinces of Cape and Transvaal in South Africa, the name having been introduced into popular Western use by a British colonial administrator, Captain William Hichens, who, in 1937, reported to the journal Discovery on local belief regarding the creature, describing it as a silent predator of unknown size and type, possessing "round, saucer-like spoor, with two-inch toenail marks."
