It is a fish, the image is upside down.

I wonder if it's a great big old Murray cod?

Could almost be a whale.



With two dorsal fins?


Umm, yes! A lot of Australian freshwater native have a dorsal fin that is effectively two separate fins.

If it's upside down, it doesn't have any dorsal fin and is therefore a dugong ;P

This is a school of similar fish that we photographed a few years ago at Bantry Bay, about 45km from the single fish engraving.

Australian freshwater native whales? (You missed the bit I was responding to.)

Dugongs with pelvic fins?

I had been watching deadly 60 where they shot humpbacks in numbers and the image of two whales with their dorsals up, reminded me.

This is an engraving of a large male kangaroo that we found last weekend. It is about 3mt from nose to tail. This engraving is well hidden up on a high point in the bush and is in remarkably good condition.
