History

Elusive giant squids and octopi have their origin in a mythical Nordic creature known as The Kraken. This is likely the largest creature ever imagined, with estimates that its circumference is one and a half miles. Despite the larger-than-life aspects of the Kraken, it nevertheless found its way into a book by the father of taxidermy himself, Carl Lennaeus. His 1735 work systema.

Naturae groups the Kraken with other Cephalopods like squid, octopus, and cuttlefish. While no creature has ever actually been sighted, the Kraken remains the gold standard when it comes to memorable mythical monsters.
