Missouri Monster (or simply Momo) is an appellation for a crypto-hominid reported around Louisiana in Pike County, Missouri, and along the Mississippi River. The creature has been noted as being particularly odoriferous, the scent compared to garbage, "rotten flesh," "foul, stagnant water," a family of skunks, and "moldy, horse smell" by varying witnesses.
