The Kraken is a legendary gigantic sea monster said to be found in the waters surrounding Norway and Greenland. It was first mentioned in an ancient Icelandic story written in the thirteenth century AD, where two monsters, the Lyngbakr and the Hafgufa, crossed paths with the main characters of the saga who were sailing across the Sea of Greenland. The Hafgufa is said to be connected with the kraken.
The unidentified author of a scientific paper released also in the 13th century defined the behavior of the two creatures after they returned from a journey to Greenland. The author speculated that the creatures were unable to reproduce due to the fact that only two were ever witnessed. The legendary creature of myth may have come from sightings of real giant squid, which are estimated to reach 46 feet in length, including tentacles. These animals usually live deep in the ocean but are seen on the surface and have allegedly "attacked" ships before when disturbed.
