Huge ape-like carnivore from episode No. 45 "A Private Little War" on the
sci-fi series STAR TREK/NBC/1966-69.
While visiting Tyree (Michael Kovack) the
leader of a primitive hill people, Starfleet Captain James T. Kirk (William
Shatner) was attacked by a large white ape with red face, and a small white
rhino-like horn on the top of its head. Its poisonous fangs put Kirk's life in
jeopardy when he was bitten during the attack.
Luckily, the cure for the poison
lay in a native plant known as the "mahko root" that was administered by
Kahn-ut-tu medicine woman named Nona (Nancy Kovack).
