The Adjule or Bush Dog (also known as the Kelb-el-khela for males and tarhsît for female), is a canine-like animal cryptid, claimed to live in the North African region, close to the Sahara Desert. First reported by Théodore Monod in 1928, and today is described as an undiscovered variety of the African Wild dog. The most recent sighting was in 1992 from the resident hunters of the village in Western Mauritania. and has not been seen since. There are no known photos of the Adjule, its sightings have been debunked by most of the scientific world as just sightings of African Wild Dogs living close to the Sahara, which today they do not, or other known species which has mange, or a creature that has been misidentified by the local population of humans.
