Is the Australian Bunyip real or mythical?

Modern researchers have unearthed fossils and other proof to say that the Bunyip might actually be an extinct animal that roamed the #Australian marshlands. From egg laying duck shaped otters called the platypus to the dog faced, jumping bunnies called wallabies, anything is possible in Australia. 

 

Aboriginal mythology has talked about the bunyip who is a bird-like creature that’s similar to an alligator. Its head and body are similar to that of an emu, and its long bill has a similar serrated appearance to that of a stingray.

 

It has also been suggested by some researchers that the Bunyip may, in fact, be a modern descendant of a prehistoric marsupial known as Diprotodon Australis or, as it more commonly referred, the giant sloth. Researchers have also attributed other animals to the bunyip like doyarchu, also called the Irish Crocodile, A giant otter or an Australian Fur Seal, which emits a loud cry similar to the bunyip when it is trapped inland.

 

We still wait to get confirmation on physical evidence on the Bunyip and its presence in Australia.
