Aussie Sea Serpent!

A Bishop Finds a Sea Serpent.

Pall Mall Gazette.

Yesterday's Australian mail brought news

of the finding, by the Bishop of Adelaide, of

the carcass of a sea serpent at Avoid Point,

near Coffin Bay, South Australia. The Bishop

in writing to an Adelaide friend, states that

while riding along the sea beach he came

across a dead sea serpent about 60 feet in

length. It had a head five feet long, like that

of an immense snake, with two holes on the

top. There were no teeth in the jaws. The

body was round, and the tail resembled that

of a whale. The Bishop describes his "find"

as the most peculiar animal he has ever seen.
