The Bunyip is an Australian mythological creature, so I was very keen on having a look at its history and what it’s actually supposed to look like. We hear names of some of these creatures and they’re more ideas than actual fully formed images in our heads.
I had a vague recollection of a bunyip television series when I was a kid and fortunately one of my Australian Patreon backers reminded me of “Alexander Bunyip” but apart from that, I have no idea actually what they were supposed to look like.
Head of a dog or sea lion is apparently the most prevalent form of them. They live in billabongs (Australian term for bodies of water in the outback) and are very aggressive.
