Here we have the legendary Goggauer Saw-Fish.

This is my entry for Patchtogether's current contest: "Zombies, Voodoo and Dark Art"


- This creature has an interesting story, it's an Austrian myth...

... the old story tells... when the Goggau lake was once created, the devil itself filled it with all kinds of beasts, dark creatures and strange animals. One of them was a giant Saw-fish. The teeth of this fish were not the most dangerous part on him, he got a big and sharp saw instead of his fin on the back. He was able to cut through just everything with it.
A brave adventurer wanted to find out more about this dangerous creature. But he also wanted to be secure while diving and so he made and also wore 9 layers of clothing made out of glass-armour, so the story tells.
The fish was waiting for him in the deep already. It could have been the adventurer's last dive, he underestimated the saw-fish but he was lucky in the end. The fish did cut through 8 of the 9 layers of glass-armour just with one sweep of his body, the fish thought that he was done with that brash intruder and did not start a second attack immediately. The adventurer noticed that and was able to get out of the water before the fish saw that he was still in one piece...

This is the myth of the giant Saw-Fish of the Goggau Lake.
