AN ENORMOUS mythical sea creature may be living in the South Atlantic Ocean, just off the coast of Antarctica.
Monster hunters spotted what they believe to be a giant squid on Google Earth, near Deception Island in the South Shetland Islands.

Experts believe the sea beast, whose middle section was measured to be 30m or 100 feet, is the Kraken – a legendary creature responsible for capsizing ships and killing sailors off the Nordic coast in the 20th Century and further back in history.
The monster could be up to 120m long, including the tentacles, according to the conspiracy theorists who first spotted it on April 9.

Scott C Waring, who found the image, 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.
“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.”
The Kraken is believed to have brought down THREE BOATS as recently as the 1930s

Another person, writing on UFO Sightings Daily, likened the monster to prehistoric marine lizard the plesiosaurus.
