The Kraken is often depicted to having tentacles that were long enough to reach the top of the mast of a ship. In order for its tentacles to do that, they would have to be at least one hundred feet in length. When you take those numbers into account, the rest of the Kraken’s body would have to be around the same length as its tentacles. That would mean the Kraken would have to be two hundred feet in length! Can you imagine being on a boat and running into a two hundred foot sea monster with strength to match, the weaponry of a colossal squid, the intelligence of an octopus, and the aggression of a humboldt squid. When you put those traits together, you get yourself the ultimate sea monster. That is the leviathan I intend to depict in my story on the Kraken. No wonder the fisherman’s tales of old were scary.
