Bigfoot Mermaid


AKA Giant Squid

There was probably no legendary creature as horrifying as the Kraken, a giant sea monster. According to stories this huge, many armed, creature looked like an island when motionless and could reach as high as the top of a sailing ship's main mast with its arms deployed.

The Kraken was said to dwell off the coasts of Norway and Greenland. The legend of the Kraken is probably what we know today as the giant squid or cephalopod. Though they are considerably less than a mile and a half across, they are large enough to wrestle with a sperm whale.
