Another mysterious primate, this time from the Ivory Coast.
Allegedly sighted for centuries, descriptions of the Sehité make it a reddish-brown hairy dwarf with a human-like face, which according to the local natives superstition, will bring bad luck to the person who sees it.
According to believers, the Sehité and the Agogwe are very much alike, and might even be the same species or race, which it is speculated was very common and widespread ages past in the dark continent, until it stared to vanish.
What are these mysterious creatures reported all over Africa? Another disappearing race of pre-humans? Or just local superstitions and legends? We may never know the answer, since sightings and reports have been dwindling trough the later years.
