Nice looking creature, but the location is a bit weird, down in Nadgee south of Wonboyn beach, where I am pretty sure there are no laundries! Needs fixing - use the edit button on the top right of the screen and click on the correct location on the map.

Sorry ... did not enlarge map and cite marker on the correct spot. Old and out of practice (they are my excuses, and I am sticking to them).

That looks a lot more plausible, thanks. Always good to zoom right in, to save things appearing to be out in the ocean or other improbable spots.
