Basket monsters are bizarre creatures from Zulu folklore.

Appearance Edit

These creatures appear as normal baskets, but they have the ability to sprout legs.

Behaviour Edit

If someone unwittingly places something in a basket monster, it will grow legs and scuttle away like a crab. The most common retelling of this myth is that of a mother placing her child in one, only to find that the basket has vanished after she turns her back.[1]
