Why did the Kraken, a tentacular ancient mermonster reported to eat whales and sometimes entire ships, play with its food?
An American scientist has a fascinating new theory, along with startling new evidence this week about the ancient mermonster known as the Kraken.
That’s right, the Kraken is rearing its many tentacles around the world again this week.
From its scaly roots in ancient lore where this most famous mermonster was sometimes thought to be a beautiful woman cursed by the gods and other times the demigod children of Poseidon, to a university in Massachusetts today where a scientist named Professor Mark McMenamin has revealed new proof about the existence of the ancient mermonster along with an interesting new fact that it did something very bizarre with the bones of its food.
The professor says he has found the ichthyosaurus bones of a Kraken’s lunch arranged into very unusual patterns and shapes. The odd configuration of the bones, he said could only have been put that way by a much larger predator, like a Kraken who were known to be over 100 feet long.
“There is virtually zero chance the sea’s currents could have moved these bones into such an arrangement,” he told a meeting of geoscientists, adding that octopus are also know to do this with their prey.
So the question of the day, why would the Kraken play with its food?
With cryptozoologists and supernatural survivologists around the world now working to try to answer that question, here are the prevailing theories, for your consideration:
1. Kraken, like other advanced species, were artists at heart, trying to express something deep in their scaly hearts or possibly just trying to spruce up their lairs to impress potential mates.
2. Kraken, like most other enchanted and/or cursed beings, would be desperate to find the way out of their condition. Is this evidence of a spell in progress? Or an attempt to communicate the details of her situation to an outsider?
3. Kraken, like anyone eating the same old ships and sailors century after century, sometimes get bored with their food. Can you blame them for playing with the bones?
