The Bunyip is an aquatic creature in Australian Aboriginal myths that inhabits swamps, creeks, and riverbeds. It pulls those who gets too close to the water with its large, sharp claws, crippling its victims with its roar. The Bunyip’s appearance is a bit of a mystery, as there are numerous accounts regarding its appearance: one large eye on its back, a dog-like face, a crocodile-like head, alligator legs, dark fur, a horse-like tail, flippers, walrus-like tusks, snake like, or is a bird-like creature with a long serrated bill.
