bunyip

A creature that is an integral part of the Australian aboriginal mythology, which translates loosely as devil or evil spirit. The bunyip is said to live in swamps and waterholes in southeastern Australia; recorded descriptions—canine facies, dark fur, flippers, tail and tusks—overlap those of marine seals and sea lions which occasionally wander inland. There are neither credible photos nor dissected skeletons of the bunyip.
