what do you mean three types of krakens after the giant squid?there is the giant,collosal......thats it.although they might need to refine that with the discovery of a 108 foot long squid..prolly just a big the way people say "cloverfield" is a good monster,maybe-but it isnt biologicaly correct for a deep sea monster,it would not walk on the sea floor,but swim.

I can't even imagine what's down there. I want so much to believe in all of these mysterious creatures. I find the deep sea ones the easies to believe in.

Big ugly scary monster ones of course!! NOthing that I want to ever ever meet! I'll stay on land thanks very much! LOL

Isn't 3/4 of the world in water? We are still discovering new species on land. I would be surprised if that number tripled if we could go to all areas of the ocean at all depths.

i cant remember where i saw this at(i think it was on an anime thing......but i also saw an exampe of this on a book about what aliens might look like)anyways the creature looked like the sea floor itself,and it just kinda stayed their until it needed to move.maybe something like this could be the source of the "bloop"

my cousin used to work on a trawling boat and said he saw some big animals out at sea and he reckons that once they saw a shark that was as long as the boat and its eye was like a dinner plate.

Are you thinking of Alien Planet? And the massive three legged herbivores? Hmm maybe a giant ray? When did you cousin see these huge creatures? and how did he compare the sharks eye to a dinner plate?

THAT is an interesting thought.

I never bought the whole "get confused" or "get sick" reasons for them coming on land.

What about this?

The Bloop is the name given to an ultra-low frequency underwater sound detected by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration several times during the summer of 1997. The source of the sound remains unknown.

The sound, traced to somewhere around 50° S 100° W (South American southwest coast), was detected repeatedly by the Equatorial Pacific Ocean autonomous hydrophone array, which uses U.S. Navy equipment originally designed to detect Soviet submarines. According to the NOAA description, it "rises rapidly in frequency over about one minute and was of sufficient amplitude to be heard on multiple sensors, at a range of over 5,000 km." Though it matches the audio profile of a living creature, there is no known animal that could have produced the sound. If it is an animal, it would have to be, reportedly, much larger than even a Blue Whale, according to scientists who have studied the phenomenon.[1]

So, the bloop (50°S 100°W / -50, -100) is near Point Nemo, an oceanic pole of inaccessibility (48°50′S 123°20′W / -48.833, -123.333).[citation needed]

In popular culture
Because the Bloop noise originated near the location of the fictional sunken city of R'lyeh from H.P. Lovecraft's story "The Call of Cthulhu", the Bloop has been linked to Cthulhu by Lovecraft fans.[2] In the alternate reality game promoting the movie, the Bloop was also linked to the monster from Cloverfield[3] The Bloop was seen in The Loch by Steve Alten as the call of an undiscovered species of giant eel,[4] as well as in Frank Schätzing's novel The Swarm as the speech of the intelligent species, the Yrr.[5]. The title track from Dntel's 2001 album Life Is Full of Possibilities repeats a sample of the Bloop sound set to music.


I always wondered why more attention was never given to this, I think its very interesting

^^ was already discussed in this thread

I believe in unknown creatures living down there, I really hope some more time is devoted to exploring the bottom of the ocean floors. Heck, I'd do it just to satisfy my curiosity if I was given the chance!

More attention needs to be given to Antarctica
