An animal from the mythology of the Australian Aborigines. A water creature or spirit. A cryptid that lives in swamps, billabongs, streams, riverbeds and other bodies of water. 

The testimonies of eyewitnesses who allegedly saw him can be divided into two groups: a creature resembling a dog or a seal, and an animal with a long neck and a small head. The first is most often described as a creature 1.2-1.8 meters long, covered with long dark brown or black fur. According to descriptions of this kind, the bunyip has a round head resembling a bulldog, with prominent fangs and well-visible ears.

Most of these descriptions talk about the absence of a tail, fins and long whiskers. The second type of descriptions of bunyips speaks of long-necked creatures ranging in size from 1.5 to 40 meters in length.

He has a long, elongated torso covered with something similar to fur or feathers. Instead of legs, he has fins, which he violently beats when angry. It is translucent.

The creature allegedly has black or brown fur, large ears and small fangs. The head resembles a horse or an ostrich-like emu. The neck is thin (sometimes with a mane), about 1 meter in length, with numerous folds on the skin. There is a tail like a horse's. At night, you can allegedly hear the terrifying screams of these creatures when they eat other animals or people who carelessly approached their shelters.

He was considered the cause of all the bad things that happened to a person.
