The enormous beast, which was found just off the coast of Antarctica, is believed to be a giant squid. And some experts have estimated that the goliath could be a whopping 120m long.
The creature, which was first spotted by keen-eyed internet users in April, has been causing an online stir. Conspiracy theorists have speculated it could actually be a mythical Kraken – a terrifying creature said to live off the coasts of Norway and Greenland.
The man who discovered the scary images, Scott C Waring, said: “This looks like a Kraken. “I used Google ruler and it says this is 30 metres (100 feet) from head to end, but this looks like just the mid area of a giant squid, which means it could be 60+ meters long with tentacles.”One online commenter agreed with Mr. Waring’s claims about the creepy critter.
They said: “That sounds like a Kraken to me. Maybe the stories about the giant monster of the deep are all true. “A lot of stories are based on truths. I think we found the Kraken.”
Other people have speculated the giant could be a prehistoric marine lizard known as a Plesiosaurus.
