Contender # 9 - Bunyip
This time, on Counting Cryptids:
We discuss the Bunyip. Straight out of Aboriginal Australia, the Bunyip is a smorgasbord of strange. Reports of fur and feathers, fins and claws, a beard and a duck bill (and if that wasn't strange enough, a single massive eye, and a stomach-mouth). While descriptions of the Bunyip seem to paint this creature to be something of a sore thumb, modern day sightings may not be as predictable as one would expect.
Do you think there something sinister swimming in the swamps? Or could something have simply been lost in translation?
