History of the Kraken

History says that the Kraken could still be out there or the Kraken could no longer exist. In 1870, Jules Verne wrote Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea about the Kraken and its sightings. Stories have it that the creature was able to pull a large sailing ship underwater with just its arms.
