For centuries, we always assumed that the Kraken wasn’t real. It made total sense to only categorize it among the mythological monsters that seamen told tall tales about when they came ashore. It was always described as a large squid or octopus of some kind, which seemed so crazy. Keep in mind, they also told us stories about mermaids and other sea monsters that were just being referenced to make them sound cooler. However, we have now proven that giant squids do actually exist. It is also proven that they do not mind attacking anyone in their territory. Yet most of these creatures aren’t nearly as large as the Kraken has been reported to be. That tells us either there were potentially larger squids centuries ago, or they did see very large squids and created a myth to make them seem much larger.
