A South-African monster that sits at the edge of a pit and tempts passers by to throw stones at him. If someone is foolish enough to do so, the Ga-Gorib will throw the stone back causing the fool to tumble into the pit. One hero called, Heitsieibib overcame this by distracting the monster and then throwing a stone under its ear causing the monster to fall into its own pit.
