Evidence from Australia
This is an outlined rock art from Australia of a Burrunjor. A monster that has been identified as strongly resembling a Therapod dinosaur such as an Allosaurus. More about the Burrunjor can be read in our section on Cryptozoology.
This Aboriginal rock painting is dated to about 3,000 years old. It was found near Gosford, New South Wales at Brisbane Waters. It depicts the creature known from Aboriginal folklore as the Mirreeulla (giant water serpent).
This Aboriginal painting depicts the Yarru, an animal known to the Aborigines from their rivers and bodies of water and revered and feared them. The Yarru nearly exactly fits the description of a Plesiosaur and can be seen in this painting in the water alongside fish and a snake. It is clear that the Aboriginals knew the internal anatomy of these creatures by their portrayal of it's skeletal system and digestive tract. You can even see that the creature in this painting has swallowed a human, this may mean that they were known for eating people from time to time.
Creatures fitting the same description of the Yarru are known to many Aboriginal tribes throughout Australia, especially in the eastern and northern territories. These animals fitting the description of a Plesiosaur have been known by locals for many centuries and are still sighted by Aborigines and non-Aboriginal people to this day.
