A fish in the Nile River that likes to kill humans
The equinilus is found in some medieval encyclopedias. It is a large and ferocious monster that lives in the Nile River (equinilus is literally "Nile horse"). It is always eager to kill humans, and tears ships apart. It has a very thick skin and can only be captured with iron chains and only killed with iron hammers.
