Day II - Trunko

Up out of the sea,
Defeating the killer whale,
Furry trunk lashes.

Legend in South Africa speaks of a giant fish with snow-white fur like a polar bear, the trunk of an elephant and the tail of a lobster. Sighted off the country's coast in 1924, so the story goes, Trunko allegedly beat off two killer whales which makes it not only ultra weird but ultra-impressive. Hail to the huge hybrid fish with the elephantine features!
