Ngowe-2014, kwavela imibiko yokuthi kutholakale umsundu omkhulu ongamamitha angu-1,5 ehlathini lase-Ecuador. 

Kusukela lapho, kusabalale amahemuhemu ezinkundleni zokuxhumana mayelana nalesi silwane esesabekayo, ukuthi sikhona ngempela futhi siyaphila.

Silapha ukuzobika ukuthi umsundu, obizwa nge-Kraken of the Amazons, empeleni ungowoqobo.

Ngowe-2014, indoda engadalulwanga ngegama yathumela isithombe esingenhla enkundleni yokuxhumana ebizwa nge-Project Noah icela ukukhonjiswa uhlobo lwalesi silwane. Le ndoda  yabe isiphawula kamuva yathi, “Inyuvesi yase-Lowa kanye ne-Universidad Catolica (Quito) babambisane ekwenzeni ucwaningo lwalo msundu omkhulu wase-Sumaco.”

Isithombe sithathwe emagqumeni eNtabamlilo yase- Sumaco e-Ecuador.

Sasuswa isithombe ngemuva kokuba sifakiwe, njengoba umsuka womsundu kwakuthiwa into engekho.

Ngemuva kokufakwa kwesithombe ku-Facebook ngumsebenzisi wawo ngowe-2020, omunye waphawula wathi, “Yize kuyintshisekelo, awuboni yini ukuthi ayikho lento?”

Umsundu omkhulu waseNingizimu yeMelika empeleni uyisilwane esikhona, futhi lokho kwaqinisekiswa ngowe-2014.

Igama lomsundu lesiLatini lithi i-Martiodrilus crassus, elihumushwa ngokuthi “umsundu odla izinja kanye nezingane ezincane.”

Njengoba kungavamile ukuthi umsundu osabekayo udle izingane noma izinja, kubikwa ukuthi ujwayele ukungena ngobuningi kwisikhunta esingaphansi komhlaba njalo ngosuku.
