Burrunjor – The Australian Reptilian Monster

Like Comment


In Australia, there is a cryptid known as the Burrunjor. This creature has been in Australian tradition for a long time, most likely originating from Aboriginal oral tradition. According to these Aboriginal tales, the Burrunjor is a reptile that walks on its two hind legs and has two very short forearms. This 25-foot long monster was said to be fast and dangerous. But the account of the Burrunjor does not end with the Aboriginal people. Modern Australians, have also said to have seen or witnessed these creatures, as well as the carnage that they can cause.

Sometime in the 1950’s there were numerous cattle ranchers who reported that they found their cattle dead on their land, killed by some savage beast. In fact, these cattle were not only dead but some were also half-eaten by some big and mysterious animal that no one could identify. Other Ranchers even reported to have heard some thunderous roars in the jungle, with sounds of leaves and branches thrashing and breaking in the middle of the night. There was even one farmer who claimed to have seen the giant walking lizard up on two feet about 70 meters away. Suffice to say, not a lot of farmers or ranchers stayed.

In 1961, another person gave an account of the Burrunjor, claiming to have seen the monster in a swampland near the Gulf Coast. It was said to be 25-feet tall. Other sightings have not been limited to Australia; Bolivia, New Guinea, and South America have also reported seeing this type of creature. The last sighting of the creature was on 1982, there were three-toed footprints found in New South Wales. The footprint was said to have been caused by a bipedal reptile of humongous proportions since the footprint measured 2 feet wide, and 2 ½ feet long.

From the accounts, one can sum up the reptilian monster as a type of ancient dinosaur, quite possibly a T-Rex. It is unlikely that the creature is an actual T-Rex but it is possible that it might have been an ancestor of the dinosaur; one that has been living in the jungle and had little need to evolve much. Some might say that this is unlikely but the fact remains that something is out there. And in a land where kangaroos and wallabies, and other unusual and unique animals live, it is not hard to imagine a creature like the Burrunjor do exist.

There is a website that describes the Burrunjor and numerous other creatures of Cryptozoology in detail, this website is called: Unknown Creatures and it may be found at this url: http://www.unknown-creatures.com
