Mom thats nothing. You must not have heard of the legend of the kraken also known as architeuthis. I tell ya mom that sharks got nothing on architeuthis. I have always taken a shine to the family since I had a mind meld with one at a aquarium in chicago when I was a kid... Beware mom of architeuthis :P

Aye, I remember when I was naught but a wee lad, and me father would tell me, "Son, of one thing ye can be certain. Depending upon her mood, the heart of a woman can be tender and warm, or cold as the creatures from the deeps of the sea. And mark me when I say, there be monsters down there boy." Such were the raving words of me dear old dad...

Henry I know where you got the picture, I have been there many times Did your pa have a wooden leg vanni.
Architeuthis, is not really a myth or a legend tho, it exists, but it has never been observed or studied in its natural habitat.. The largest recorded specimen was about 20m in total length and around 900 kg. Caught off New Zealand in 1880. But I know there are bigger ones. :P
Its only enemy is the sperm whale, so this is no bar room brawl, more like the clash of the titians. What a battle that must be eh? :P They also have the biggest eye in the animial kingdom, and its not a simple eye either. Blah! I hope man never finds his kingdom :P

The pic of the Great White is a bit deceiving. It looks like the camera is closer to the great white and the man on the boat is considerably further away. It looks like the shark is being loaded to is not directly over the boat.

None the less, they frighten the heck out of me!

Those are good pics. The first deer one is definetly painting material...I may just do that, I like juxtopositions and that the image itself is quite surreal.

As far as the shark thing goes, that looks like the real deal to me. When deep sea creatures are brought up, many never look like they naturally do. Depressurization and gravity can do awful things to them.

Speaking of the Kraken check this recent discovery out.

Mesonychoteuthis hamiltoni is NOT a giant Squid...it's it's bigger! (external - login to view)

Dam you Jo, I gotta tend my garden, now you got me interested. I read an account from a russian boat happenstancing on a great battle between a architeuthis and a sperm whale. Jules Verne could not have done better

Deep, deep down in the sea sleeps a giant architeuthis. He has a weird dream of darkness and deepness, about consuming the entire universe, and sometimes his arms roll in the sleep. Then floods and hurricanes take their way around the world, but the architeuthis isn't aware.
Once every twenty thousand years, when the roof of the sky has returned to its old position, he awakes and glides through the sea, hungry. He eats whales or giant sharks or other kalmars or whatever he can find. But don't be afraid, tonight, he will not awake, he will sleep for some thousend years or more.

Hey Jo thanks alot for those links, 20,000 leagues under the sea is no longer fiction. A mantle length of 2.5 metres Wouldn't you like to see that his name is a tongue twister tho, Mesonychoteuthis hamiltoni the "colossal squid". So cool, thanks Jo

yeah, that one was supposed to be a juvenille too.

You wouldn't get calamari rings from those guys but calamari bracelets and headbands, but apparently they taste like ammonia because they live so deep.

I still like the tentacle hooks though.
