Whereas many have scoffed at tales of a manylegged sea creature of humongous size, the relatively recent discovery of a species we refer to as a colossal squid (which can grow up to fifteen metres long), stories of the Kraken no longer seem as unlikely as they once did! In the very earliest works however, Kraken were in fact described as being more like crabs than squid - perhaps there is still a hitherto unknown enormous sea creature lurking at the bottom of the Greenland Sea as described in the old texts!

Yacuruna: if you ever take a trip along the Amazon river, make sure you look out for the Yacuruna. According to the indigenous people of the region, these mythical water people are described as being similar to humans in their form, although their heads are backwards, they are hairier than normal and they have deformed feet. Often accompanied by a river serpent or riding on a crocodile, it is said they roam the rainforest at night, using their ability to turn into an attractive man to entice and capture their victims.

Both locals and visitors to the island have reportedly seen this ape which walks on two feet like a human. Said to be around one metre tall, and covered in grey-brown fur, this legendary creature is in fact said to have a ‘high possibility of actual existence’ by scientists who have studied the stories of the beast and its local environment. 60.
