Nguma-monene is Lingala which means "large python or boa." Nguma means " python, boa, or snake." Monene means "large or great."
Since Nguma-monene is described being like a snake, it could be an unknown type of large snake, though there are no known snakes with a serrated ridge. The people who have seen it say it is not just an oversized snake. If its not an unknown snake, then other possibilites are that it is an unknown type of lizard or possibly some type of living dinosaur.
Nguma-monene has the same type of features of another animal Mbielu-mbielu-mbielu that is also found in The Republic of Congo. It is possible that these animals are one and the same.
