Australian Demon

Australian Flesh-creeping Frighteners

Never mind the Bunyip or the Killer Kangaroo. The NAMORODO are among the worst monsters Australia can offer. They are frightful flesh-creeping fiends composed — or rather decomposed — of rotting skin and bone, shreds and sinews.

The wind moans through them as they fly at night, waiting to pounce on you and suck your insides out. If they catch you, they’ll turn you into one of them. What a horrible prospect.

There is no defense except to leave Australia before the sun goes down. Vampires are cuddly in comparison.
