Giant octopuses exist, and sometimes when we see them in documentaries, we can think of Kraken! Let’s debate on Kraken today, perhaps you have heard about it in books, video games or on internet.
Kraken is said to be a very giant octopus which usually attacked ships. That sea monster was originated in Norway, but according to some scholars, it is said it was present near Iceland as well. To be clear, we do not have a concrete evidence that Kraken existed or still exists. Based on some facts, it is no doubt that Kraken was a legendary monster, just like other monsters or cryptids such as the Jersey devil, Big Foot or Yeti.
The main question is why people have invented the story of Kraken? Well, we all know humanity has always invented a lot of imaginative creatures in the past and we still do it today. Perhaps Kraken existed, but like a giant octopus and not a “super giant” sea monster which attacked several ships or whatever!
More than that, Kraken does not refer only on octopus but also other sea creatures. Kraken could be a giant crab, or a giant eel and so on… We cannot believe in something that we do not have a proper proof. Thus, as conclusion, Kraken was just a normal giant octopus where people had misinterpreted as an evil monster.
