Unknown PRIMATE of the Indian subcontinent.

Variant names: Tanacht.

Physical description: Size and shape of a tiger. 
Covered in tawny fur. Head-hair, blackish and 
frizzled. Face like a human’s. Snub nose. Humanlike 
hands. Hind feet are like a tiger’s. No 
tail.

Significant sighting: Some Indians from Bengal 
took this animal to the Red Sea as a curiosity, 
where André Thevet saw it in the sixteenth 
century.

Possible explanations: 
(1) The Slow loris (Nycticebus coucang) has 
only a stub of a tail, and its face looks 
humanlike. It lives in the rain forests of 
northeast India. However, it’s only about 15 
inches long. 
(2) A large lemur from Madagascar, such as 
the Indri (Indri indri ) or the as yet 
unknown TRATRATRATRA.
