Tsetse flies are monsters with a painful and sometimes deadly bite. They spread numerous diseases such as sleeping sickness. They are in all the swamps in the Congo basin. Once one finds you it wont leave until it has your blood. The are fast and hard to kill. Squashing them doesn't always work so its off with their head. Sometime an invincible one comes along. During my time in the Congo I was plagued by them This one I beheaded but it still managed to fight off two ants!
