I never heard of the Tatzelwurm nor the Dingonek, the Jungle Walrus, but I like the idea of both.

Tatzelwurm is one of my favourites. It's been reported as having two arms, or two legs, or two wings, or a combination of wings and arms or legs, or even none of the above. My favourite image used to be easy to find on the internet -- a snake with two hind legs -- by it looks like there's been a lot of tatzelwurm interest in recent years, and now most of the images I can find are of a snake-like thing with two arms.
