The Tano Giant is a large, white ape-man sighted in the Gold Coast region of Africa.
AppearanceThe Tano Giant is usually described as a "white ape of extraordinary stature" that was apparently "past all men" in size. Its arms alone were reported to be as thick as a full grown man. Its skin was said to be pure white, but has black hair. Its head is described as being flat and the size of a large monkey's.
The giant was said to keep the skin of a bush cow to wrap around itself whenever it got cold. It is described as being extremely aggressive towards humans, one story even saying it kidnapped a woman and her children only to mutilate them all. The only known thing to repel the giant is said to be fire.
