- n. A type of sea creature reported seen by a Miss Lovell and others at Sandy Cape in South-East Queensland, Australia on 8 Jun 1890. She described it as some 30 feet long with a turtle-like neck extending from a rounded body some 8 feet across, and a long fish-like tail. Never seen again, and improbabilities in the description suggest a hoax.
Miss Lovell's first report (quote below) spelt the creature moka moka, but in her second moha moha (also below). (Wiktionary)
