On a day which included a visit to the optometrist , this strange creature , from a distance , gave the appearance of a tagged man-eater shark or a killer whale chasing a tasty baby seal on a bank of Ross River , Townsville. On closer examination , it proved to be a stormwater pipe with a fin like vent , a wide range of litter thereabouts . This unedifying display of junk is just off the Flinders Street East nightclub area , not far from the Museum of Tropical Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority headquarters . A long immersed , rusting , upended shopping trolley with a crop of crustaceans was also spotted nearby .
Later on a visiting school of noisy Norwegian Eurovision sardines , above , was photographed forming a mosh pit .
