Eloi Razafimandimby (a well-educated son of a city doctor) saw his first kalanoro in a rice paddy behind his village and describes it as, “a little man, less than a metre tall, with hair all over his body and long fingernails.” They can apparently be lured by the irresistible smell of frying pistachio nuts but attempts to catch them are usually unsuccessful because their feet point backwards and hunters invariably track them in the wrong direction!
In 1889, however, a capture was reported to the Royal Geographical Society and, in 1924, Chase Salmon Osborn described a kalanoro-sighting that he assumed ‘must have been a honeymoon couple’ because they were making love by a campfire. Despite their human traits and telepathic abilities kalanoro are considered animals.
