BiologyEdit

Why not mention the man-eating crocodile Gustave? The article about the Ruzizi River mentions him in its Fauna and Flora section, as he's famous in the region. He's also the real life subject that was the basis for the movie Primeval. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 162.194.115.33 (talk) 22:25, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

Che GuevaraEdit

I don't know where Che's camp was but unless it was on the shores of the lake and utilised the lake in some way, its inclusion in this article doesn't seem justified.Rexparry sydney 08:42, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

References?Edit

Should it be mentioned somewhere that this lake was used as a setting for one of the Doctor Dolittle series (by Hugh Lofting)? I don't remember which one it was (not Voyages of Doctor Dolittle) but the lake played a major role in the Biblical flood as described by Lofting. Interesting piece of trivia, not sure if it's relevant enough to be put in an article. Cinnamingirl (talk) 06:42, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

Invertebrates and fish from TanganyikaEdit

it would be great if there was an article covering the biology of the lake. I can't believe this article is so poor in wikipedia. --Pedro (talk) 18:53, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

Map Needed BadlyEdit

We need a map that actually gives us laymen a better idea where in Africa this lake is. It's too zoomed in.

EtymologyEdit

I didn't find anything on the name of the lake. What does "Tanganyika" mean and what language does it come from? I just so happened to find that in the Luvale language, "Tanganyika" means star. Although Luvale is spoken quite far away in Zambia, I wonder if the meaning is still the same, in another Bantu language. Any ideas? — N-true (talk) 16:59, 3 August 2013 (UTC)

Geological historyEdit

Trying to answer a question at Talk:Nile it became obvious that this article is seriously lacking anything about its geological history. Was it, for instance, created in 3 stages? Did it connect directly to the Nile (evidently not). Etc. Dougweller (talk) 13:16, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

Thallasoids?Edit

  Resolved

As far as I know the proper spelling is Thalassoids, the Greek for sea being Θάλασσα.79.50.207.152 (talk) 16:51, 9 November 2017 (UTC)

Correct and I have dealt with this typo. RN1970 (talk) 13:27, 24 June 2018 (UTC)
