A giant sea serpent is able to attack an entire ship and sink it. It lives in underwater caves, from which it swims to the shore to swallow calves, sheep and pigs whole. This serpent has a long spine and fiery red eyes. It strikes ships by raising itself up as high as a column, then it goes after the men and devours them. The sight of a sea serpent is always a bad omen: a king or prince will die, a great war is ignited, or some other significant disaster will occur.
