just did a search on Krakens, pretty tough creatures. I remember 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, the movie, and the crew of the Nautilus were fighting a giant squid in an epic battle during a storm. the book by Jules Verne was great too. ahh, the Greeks had Perceus fighting the Cetus, a sea serpent, and about 1,000 years later, the Kraken is discovered in Norse Mythology. interesting pictures of what it might look like, and how it looks turning wooden ships into splinters and sinking sailors into a tasty snack.
