The Grootslang ("big snake") is a word used to describe several cryptids, one an elephant and the other a snake. This is a page about the former, from Benin.
Appearance & Description Edit
The Grootslang resembles a large elephant. Differences include the Grootslang's larger size, as well as its extra horns and tusks. Also, the Grootslang is carnivorous, even eating people. The Grootslang also has a long, snake-like tail, which is why it shares its name with a snake-based cryptid.
The two (believable) theories concerning the identity of the elephant Grootslang are hoaxes or an unknown branch off the elephant evolutionary tree.
