The Red Lizard of Ayer's Rock

His boomerang didn’t come back. Out hunting on Uluru (Ayer’s Rock) one Dreamtime day, he threw the prototype hunting stick and it got stuck in the rock.

Unable to scoop it out with his bare hands, he finally died in a cave of frustration and starvation. His remains are there to this day.
