Mysterious sea creature found in Swansea, on the New South Wales Central Coast in Australia on Monday. It was discovered by Robert Tyndall, according to the Newcastle Herald, who found the dead creature on the beach, along with “confused and slightly unnerved” locals.
The creature looks like the result of a botched science experiment, melding a crocodile’s body with the nose of a dolphin and the skin of an eel or a fish. According to marine biologist Julian Pepperell, measuring 1.4 metres (4.5 feet). Not too shy of its maximum length of 1.8 metres (5.9 feet.)

Pepperell told the newspaper that the eel appears to be quite old. The sea creature is famous for giving night fishermen a fright when it’s accidentally caught. It also has a nasty bite that’s “geared towards inflicting slashing wounds,” as well as “strong muscle.”
