Australian 'Mystery Creature From The Deep' Washes Up On Shores Of Lake Macquarie

Post by Guest on Wed Feb 17, 2016 3:08 pm

Australia is well-known for its deadly and strange-looking creatures, but a picture of the carcass of a prehistoric-looking creature on the shores of a well-known lake was too much for most people's imaginations. The beast, which appears to have a crocodile-like jaw but the body of a giant fish, washed up on a boat ramp next to Lake Macquarie, in New South Wales, prompting a local man to post a picture of it onto his Facebook account.

Ethan Tippa shared pictures of the unidentified creature, leading to speculation on across the world.

He wrote: "This is at Swansea boat ramp. What the fuck is it?" to accompany the picture of the grotesque mystery.

This wee li'l beastie was identified as a 1.4 metre long Pike eel...

By the by, this particular Swansea is just a few klicks down the road from where my brother and his family live, over on the Eastern side of the Lake..

The camera angle probably had something to do with the apparent size and weirdness of that critter.

Appears to have no eyes. Maybe just the way the light hits the lens.
