A large crocodile creature of the Dreamtime animals of Australia. It lived in a swamp preying on animals but over time it began to prey upon people too. A story tells of the hero Toolala who tried to kill the beasts. He threw many spears but none pierced its skin. The Kurrea, enraged then chased him smashing through all obstacles. Toolala saw his mother-in-law in a Bumble Tree in the distance. When he arrived at the tree the Kurrea screamed in terror and fled. Since then the Kurrea has not preyed on humans.
