In the very top part of Australia, Arnhem Land is a vast wilderness that is sparsely populated by humans and heavily populated by animals of all kinds. Some Aboriginal groups in this area have an oral history of the Burrunjor, a “giant lizard” that ate kangaroos.
This is not surprising given that Australia is full of lizards, some quite large. However, the Burrunjor is bipedal and 7.6 meters (25 ft) long. Some reports give it feathers. Many say that it snorts and huffs and puffs. The last reported sighting of the Burrunjor was in 1985 when it frightened a traveling family.
Although no photographs of this animal exist, the Burrunjor has been identified as a Tyrannosaurus rex–type of dinosaur. Many footprints have been found and plaster casts made.
As far as we know, there are “officially” no big cats in Australia. However, many feral cats, which have grown quite large, have taken over the bush and killed millions of native animals. As we’ve discussed, thylacines may be bouncing around. There was also once a “marsupial lion.” However, people see these creatures with astonishing regularity. Sensible people as well as people whom we may not be so inclined to believe.
The Gippsland region of Victoria is a roughly rectangular area bordered by mountains and sea. It’s a farming region east of Melbourne with many heavily forested areas where cryptids could hide.
Are these giant cats unclassified marsupials? Are they freakishly large but previously domesticated moggies? Or are they a breeding population of big cats? The Victorian state government has inquired but found no proof of big cats.
Can you Identify?
This is indeed real.
Two nurses in the town of Kitchenuhmaykoosib in northern Ontario, Canada, found a bizarre creature on a lakeshore while walking with their dog Sam.
Sam sniffed at something dark and furry that was lying face down in the water, and promptly pulled out a strange beast unlike anything the pair had ever seen. The animal, which has a long hairy body with bald skin on its head, feet and face, hairless white face and creepy fangs.
The nurses took a few photos of the smelly thing and left it there. It was little more than a regional curiosity until photos of it recently appeared on the Web. Speculation ran rampant:
What do you think it is?
