Fantastic Fearsome Beasts

ilomba
(Ee-lom-ba)

Face
ilomba’s victims see it as
a monstrous snake that
appears to be “wearing”
the face of the wizard
who created it.

ilomBa

head
ilomba may kill many
times. as it does, it
grows larger and may
acquire an additional
head for every victim.

a

ll was quiet inside the house. it was night now, and the only
occupant was drifting in and out of sleep. suddenly there was a
rustle, as though someone—or something—was pushing its way
through the reedwork roof. there in the moonlight was a sight that made
the room’s occupant howl in terror. dropping through the roof into the
room was a gigantic snake, but what
had made the man cry out wasn’t the
sight of the reptile. it was the creature’s
monstrous face! even when horribly
distorted, he recognized the beast’s
features immediately. it was the face of
the wizard mukelabai, and the ilomba
was here to kill him!
ACTUAL Size

Body
to some, ilomba looks like
an ordinary snake, but to
the victim, it appears as
a horrifying half-human,
half-snake.

u the wizArd mukelAbAi hAd creAted the ilombA from the blood and nails of his
enemies, sealed in snakeskin and brought to life by magic. at first the ilomba had been
nothing more than an egg. slowly it had hatched and started to grow, fed on a diet of porridge
and eggs. now, after five years, it was old enough to demand victims and mukelabai was able
to send it out to drink the blood and souls of his enemies.

did you know?

like a vampire, ilomba bites its victim’s neck and sucks out the blood. the souls it consumes
along with the blood are used by the evil wizard to create zombies—undead slaves!

Where in the world?

size
unlike many magical creatures,
ilomba is not born as a fully
grown adult. he must grow to
maturity over time.

the tale of the ilomba comes from
the legends of the lozi people.
the lozi live in Western zambia,
namibia, angola, and Botswana
in africa.

• this nightmare creature can only live as long as the wizard has victims to feed it. once that
aFrica

supply is exhausted then the ilomba will turn on its creator.

if the wizard is injured or killed, then so is the ilomba. the same is true of the ilomba. the
wizard can destroy his creation, but once he does so he is forever haunted by the souls of those
he has murdered.

• in november 2012, the Zambian Watchdog newspaper printed a letter from a police officer.
the officer wanted to report the behavior of a corrupt fellow officer who was believed to be
keeping an ilomba at the police station.

Family Encyclopedias

Classic Titles

From Animals, Birds and Dinosaurs to Military Aircraft, Military
Uniforms and Tanks and Armored Fighting Vehicles, Tiptoe’s fully
illustrated encyclopedias range across many topics. A wealth
of information can be gained from the colour photographs or
illustrations and specification boxes of every entry.

MONSTERS AND MYTHS

Tiptoe’s classic titles range from single books
to multi-volume series, from books on mythical
monsters to working animals to the world’s
strangest, most exotic animals, from dinosaurs,
sea creatures and other terrifying creatures
to sticker books and sticker calendars, from
astronomy to modern warfare and ancient Rome,
from military disasters to American Cars.
