Since that sighting, it has also been seen in the wild. Its range is between the Lomama and Tsuapa rivers in the central part of the country.

Its eyes are described as human-like, and has a blue bottom. and has a strange booming call that can echo through the forest where it is found. To hear its call, click here .
