Google Ruperticus Murdochulus, I heard this creature is a parasite that sometimes returns for the winter after feeding on the blood of the west.

Australian Giant Lizard Research

Giant reptilian monsters in the Australian bush were known even to our early European settlers and have been discussed around countless outback campfires for generations. Accurate descriptions of them can be found in Aboriginal myths and legends dating back untold thousands of years. These reptiles have been claimed seen in every mainland Australian state, and are also referred in ancient Tasmanian Aboriginal folklore. Early European settlers claimed to have had numerous encounters with these monsters, and the sighting of one near any bush town was likely to create a wave of terror among the populace.

Very sarcastic and rude to a genuine question. Sorry had to say this and I,m glad you were ignored by th other posters.

Back to the OP try a google search on Australian mythical reptile, I think I remember some story about this and have,nt googled it myself so good luck.

If I remember its all about an Aboriginal story, much like Scotlands Loch Ness monster.

Try this site for starters, it pretty much covers them all including the Yowie, Tasmanian Tigers, big black cat sightings and the Megalania (giant prehistoric lizard).

How is the Thylacine a crypto? They existed, but are now extinct.
I think Australia has a lot more interesting places (as in said to be paranormal) than stories of cryptids. The known animals here are weird enough

Cryptozoology is basically defined as the study of animals/creatures whose existence has not been "proved". The Thylacine did definitely exist, and they are thought to be extinct, BUT there are many (modern) sightings of the thylacine, yet no one can prove that they still exist, thus they fall well within the definition of Cryptozoology.

Even Steve Irwin believed that some Thylacines survived. See here. Strange enough some people deny this. But that's a conspiracy for another thread.

and like Gemwolf said although they are classified as extinct several reports a year of sightings are made including the usually blurry pics and blobby video

it falls under cryptid becasue it may still exist in an unkown to cience breeding population, or may be an animal similar to it thats currently unkown to science, both possabilities would class it as a cryptid

but you think a bush living hairy biped of unknown origin a 30 foot long monitor lizards and possibley the survival of small breeding populations of the last great marsupial carnivore are dull?

sorry creaky floorboards and rattling pipes you can keep gimme the cryptids anyday

Yowie sightings in the Katoomba & Kangaroo Valley areas have often been reported for years....thats NSW Australia.
There used to be a old guy who kept records of sightings in the Katoomba region....but I don't know if he is still living!
My husband seen a Yowie at Cudmirrah NSW in the late 1980's.This is in the Huskisson area.
He was with about 5 mates collecting firewood in the bush ,down the road from a friends house.They were getting wood for a bonfire....early evening.They seen something big & hairy moving quickly, and first thought it was a large kangaroo.But as it moves past them again they realised it was something bigger. It circled them continuously as they ran from the bush & back down the road.They reported to the guy at Katoomba a few weeks later ,after telling poeple in the area about their experience.Someone directed them to the old guy at Katoomba...he even had photo's and showed them maps of areas that had sightings regulary.
My husband still talks about this with his mates as it scared them badly.

Okay I guess I understand about the Tazzie Tiger being a cryptid. Tazzie is the only state that I have not been to yet, so when I eventually go perhaps I will have to do some looking around!


Having basically spent my whole life in the bush I have seen some strange things. Mostly just giant Roos and Goannas (and I'm talking GIANT) and I have seen min min lights on several occasions.

As for the Bunyip (or yeti, whatever you want to call it), I went camping at a place called Eungella in North Queensland many years ago and I woke up in the morning to some 'tourists' talking about the 'scary and extremely disturbing' 'screams' they heard the night before at about 11:00pm. They were talking to the ranger and they were so certain and had convinced themselves that they had heard a yowie until I explained to them that I had heard the noises as well and in fact it was just a cow
(they can make some pretty freaky noises when they want to!)

Ruperticus Murdochulus


Brilliant!

I wanted to go look for the Tasmanian Tiger someday, but after watching Australia's deadly dozen (animals) I am scared to go anywhere down there.

The Yowie is probably the best known (along with big cats). It seems largely restricted (well, reports are anyway) to the heavily forested areas of the eastern mountain ranges. The Blue Mountains in particular seems to have more claimed sightings than anywhere else. One person claims to have had a Yowie that used to visit the bushland around his house for many years (link below).

The big cat reports seem more dispersed. There have been so many sightings by otherwise reliable people (even the DPI head Veterinarian claims some of the signs, such as certain predation on livestock, cannot be explained any other way) in the Blue Mountains that the NSW government got a big cat expert to do a survey on the area some years back. Apparently he concluded that it is far more likely than not, that free ranging exotic big cats do exist in the area.

The Thylacine is seen regularly in Tassie. I know someone personally who claims they saw one a couple of years back and knowing the person, I find the report very reliable. There have also been reported sightings on the mainland where they are supposed to have been extinct for thousands of years.

Others include various Pleistocene megafauna thought to be long extinct, such as Megalania prisca (huge lizzard) and Thylacaleo Carnifex (marsupial tiger) that some claim could even have something to do with the big cat phenomena.
