Freakish, prehistoric-looking sea creature washes up on shores of Australian lake

imageAustralia is the land of many strange animals but this one has locals stumped.  Ethan Tipper took the photograph above of a bizarre sea creature that washed up on the shores of an Australian lake this week. The prehistoric-looking sea creature appears to be about 10 feet long with an eel-like (sea serpent) body, long snout, and hundreds of sharp teeth. The creature is possibly some sort of eel (pike eel has been suggested) but if so, it’s an unusually large one.

The creature was found on February 15, 2016 at the Swansea Boat Ramp on Lake Macquarie (near the lake’s mouth) in Newcastle, New South Wales.  Lake Macquarie (also known as Awaba) is Australia’s largest coastal salt water lagoon measuring over 40 square miles.
