Sir D'Arcy Wentworth Thompson CB FRS FRSE
(2 May 1860 – 21 June 1948)
Scottish biologist, mathematician, and classics scholar.
June 15 1920 - Professor D'Arcy Thompson, during the course of a recent lecture at the Royal Institute, said that he had no doubt that the cuttle-fish was the strange beast which the ancients had named the sea serpent. They must have seen it during one of its playful gambols, and have mistaken its wedge-shaped tail for the head of the serpent, and the end of one of its enormously lone arms for the tip of the serpent's tail.
No story of ogre, giant, or witch, was more strange and terrifying than that of the cuttlefish or octopus.
Dr Malcolm Burr
April 7 1934 - "The difference between the Triton and Molge of our ponds and the sea serpent consists only in the marine habitat and the longer neck. So we may hope to be privileged to see the myth exposed, the truth established, reputations restored, and hypothesis yield to fact."
David George Stead
(6 March 1877 – 2 August 1957)
Australian marine biologist, ichthyologist, oceanographer, conservationist and writer.

May 19 1934 - "There is not the slightest reason for thinking that the various sea monsters recorded from time to time belong to any unknown or extinct groups of animal life. Notwithstand- ing the mystery so often shrouding them at first examination by qualified men (where such is practicable) always reveals some known animal group."

Our deep need for monsters that lurk in the dark
Now we know there is nothing to be afraid of, can the Kraken finally be laid to rest? Probably not says Classen. "We humans are afraid of the strangest things. They don't need to be realistic. There's no indication that enlightenment and scientific progress has banished the monsters from the shadows of our imaginations. We will continue to be afraid of very strange things, including probably sea monsters."

Remains of sea creature washed up in Far East
Judging from the remains the creature was giant and about twice the length of a human, and it had a huge nose like a bird’s beak.
Nikolay Kim, Deputy Head of the Forecasting department of the Sakhalin Research Institute of Fisheries and Oceanography, said: 'I can confidently say that this is some kind of a dolphin. However, it has fur. It's unusual. Dolphins do not have any fur.'

Daedalus sea serpent may have been skimming whale
New drawings from Drummond’s account surfaced in 1997 that also are different than the depictions from those of an artist used by Capt. M’Quhae to illustrate his recollection of the animal. Drummond’s drawings are more suggestive of the conclusions that the animal was a sei whale skim feeding at the surface and NOT a large snake.

Greek 'Sea Monster' Identified 
A strange photo of what appears to be an unknown marine animal taken by a Scottish tourist in the Greek islands is making headlines around the world.
The viral photo has sparked speculation among armchair zoologists and monster lovers about what this bizarre animal might be, ranging from a beaked whale to the “love child of a hippo and crocodile” (best not dwell on the logistics of that coupling). While the image has some superficially similar features to various animals it does not in fact look like any known animal.




'Thames Monster' Video: Hoax or Mammal?

If what’s depicted in the video is in fact alive — and not, for example, only residing as a video effects file on a desktop somewhere — it’s unlikely to be a single enormous creature, as it appears to be in the video. Instead it’s more likely to be two smaller animals traveling together, one in front of the other but creating the illusion of one long, multi-humped serpentine form.





We Examined That Infamous Google Earth “Kraken” Image
This one caught fire after being shared by popular UFO conspiracy theorist Scott Waring, who highlighted and enhanced a satellite image off the Antarctic coast that seemed to depict some kind of massive solitary shape… an object too large to be any kind of vessel or other artificial structure.
Multiple news outlets picked up the story immediately, igniting rumors that the image depicted a gigantic squid-like creature, which users promptly dubbed a “Kraken.”
Well, I hate to be a party-pooper, but experts have weighed in on the whole “Kraken” mystery… and managed to solve it pretty quickly.
