One of the most bizarre of cryptids, Gef the talking mongoose was either a poltergeist or an extremely intelligent animal. He inhabited the Cashen's Gap near the hamlet of Dalby on the Isle of Man. He was the size of a small rat, had yellow fur and a large bushy tail. ? "If you knew what I know, you'd know a hell of a lot!"
Gef the talking Mongoose is often referred to just as "Gef" or "The Talking Mongoose". He was first reported in September of 1931. The Irving family started hearing various noises from the walls and ceiling. The noises soon became noises that not any ordinary house hold pest could make.
