The Inkanyamba is a legendary serpent said to be living in a waterfall lake area in the northern forests near Pietermaritzburg most commonly in the base of Howick Falls, South Africa. The Zulu tribes of the area believe it to be a large serpent with a horse like head. Most active in the summer months, it is believed that the Inkanyamba's anger causes the seasonal storms.[1]

Cryptologists have suggested that they might be a form of eel, augmented by local myth[citation needed]. The Inkanyamba was featured on television series Animal X. [2]
