The bunyip is a lake monster about the size of a small bull. It is covered in either grey fur or feathers. It has hooves, a wide, flat tail, and a wide mouth filled with large sharp teeth including two long fangs similar to a walrus. It has a horse-like mane down the middle of its neck, a head like an emu, and large flippers. Should any humans stray near the edge of their home, the bunyip will enslave and eventually eat them. Although possible to escape, any who do will still die shortly.[1]
