The Borneo giant snake Nabau claimed worldwide fame briefly the last two weeks and might have even been the most blogged mythical creature during the period, overthrowing the likes of Bigfoot and Loch Ness monster.

When pictures of the 100-feet shape-shifting Nabau appeared two weeks ago, it fuelled debate around the world whether the pictures were genuine. To many, the pictures were no more than the result of a lousy Photoshop job.

I had the feeling that many others had harboured the hope that the pictures were genuine.

It is now firmly established that the pictures are fake and the river where the snake was purportedly spotted is not even the Baleh River in Sarawak.

The river in the original picture, below, is Congo River in South Africa. Here are several pictures of the Congo Basin.

Having established the falseness of the first Nabau picture, we can now safely assume that the other picture, below, is also fake.

But then again… the Congo River picture could be the one that is fake. Someone may have photoshopped the picture and removed Nabau from the river to protect it from myth hunters!
