Mugato - Huge ape-like carnivore from episode No. 45 "A Private Little War" on the sci-fi series STAR TREK/NBC/1966-69.

Mugato - STAR TREK

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 a Kahn-ut-tu medicine woman named Nona (Nancy Kovack).
