Giant Kraken Lair Discovered



Quote
“I was aware that anytime there is controversy about depth, there is probably something interesting going on,” McMenamin said. And when they arrived at the remote state park and started looking at the fossils, McMenamin was struck by their strangeness.

“It became very clear that something very odd was going on there,” said McMenamin. “It was a very odd configuration of bones.”

First of all, the different degrees of etching on the bones suggested that the shonisaurs were not all killed and buried at the same time. It also looked like the bones had been purposefully rearranged. That it got him thinking about a particular modern predator that is known for just this sort of intelligent manipulation of bones.

“Modern octopus will do this,” McMenamin said. What if there was an ancient, very large sort of octopus, like the kraken of mythology. “I think that these things were captured by the kraken and taken to the midden and the cephalopod would take them apart.”

In the fossil bed, some of the shonisaur vertebral disks are arranged in curious linear patterns with almost geometric regularity, McMenamin explained.The proposed Triassic kraken, which could have been the most intelligent invertebrate ever, arranged the vertebral discs in double line patterns, with individual pieces nesting in a fitted fashion as if they were part of a puzzle.

Even more creepy: The arranged vertebrae resemble the pattern of sucker discs on a cephalopod tentacle, with each vertebra strongly resembling a coleoid sucker. In other words, the vertebral disc “pavement” seen at the state park may represent the earliest known self portrait.

But could an octopus really have taken out such huge swimming predatory reptiles? No one would have believed such a tale until the staff of the Seattle Aquarium set up a video camera at night a few years ago to find out what was killing the sharks in one of their large tanks. What they were shocked to discover was that a large octopus they had in the same tank was the culprit. The video of one of these attacks is available on the web to anyone who uses the search terms “shark vs octopus.”

“We think that this cephalopod in the Triassic was doing the same thing,” said McMenamin. Among the evidences of the kraken attacks are many more ribs broken in the shonisaur fossils than would seem accidental and the twisted necks of the ichthyosaurs.  “It was either drowning them or breaking their necks.”

Of course, it’s the perfect Triassic crime because octopuses are mostly soft-bodied and don’t fossilize well. Only their beaks, or mouth parts, are hard and the chances of those being preserved nearby are very low. That means the evidence for the murderous Kraken is circumstantial, which may leave some scientists rather skeptical. But McMenamin is not worried.

“We’re ready for this,” he said. “We have a very good case.”

Good place to add this...

The Bloop: A Mysterious Sound from the Deep Ocean | NOAA SOSUS

Maybe these weird sounds that were recorded were a Kraken mating call?  :o

What created this strange sound in Earth's Pacific Ocean? Pictured above is a visual representation of a loud and unusual sound, dubbed a Bloop, captured by deep sea microphones in 1997. In the above graph, time is shown on the horizontal axis, deep pitch is shown on the vertical axis, and brightness designates loudness. Although Bloops are some of the loudest sounds of any type ever recorded in Earth's oceans, their origin remains unknown. The Bloop sound was placed as occurring several times off the southern coast of South America and was audible 5,000 kilometers away. Although the sound has similarities to those vocalized by living organisms, not even a blue whale is large enough to croon this loud. The sounds point to the intriguing hypothesis that even larger life forms lurk in the unexplored darkness of Earth's deep oceans. A less imagination-inspiring possibility, however, is that the sounds resulted from some sort of iceberg calving. No further Bloops have been heard since 1997, although other loud and unexplained sounds have been recorded.

The Bloop

The Bloop is the name given to an ultra-low frequency and extremely powerful underwater sound detected by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in 1997. The source of the sound remains unknown.

The sound, traced to somewhere around 50° S 100° W (a remote point in the south Pacific Ocean west of the southern tip of South America), was detected several times by the Equatorial Pacific Ocean autonomous hydrophone array,[1] which uses U.S. Navy equipment originally designed to detect Soviet submarines.

Fallen Angel Discovered In Russia? 2011

This one is a Russian video... with a very loose translation from Youtube

Quote
Translated From Russian:

Archaeologists have been extremely puzzled when they found a medieval mound strange creature, and at some distance from his gigantic horse herbal bath.

In Nevinnomyssk ordinary, in general, the excavation of an ancient burial mound became virtually episode of "The X-Files." Archaeologists have found so mysterious artefacts that the experts, just as Dana Scully in the series, denying all non-scientific version of the scientific explanation, yet to offer anything they can not.

NTV correspondent Maxim Berezin considered the findings.

The name of this unique artifact was not invented by science fiction fans, and most that are on the conservative scholars. In the ancient burial place, uncovered during the excavation, it was discovered a strange thing - sheep skeleton with a human skull. More refined definition than chelovekobaran, their discovery, archaeologists were not able to pick up.

Anna Shvyreva, Department of Nature in the Stavropol Museum: "What is it chelovekobaran? That is, there was a combination of cranial young person under 25 years of age and body rams. "

Sergey Savenko, one of the discoverers of chelovekobarana in the head at first climbed unscientific thought: what if the Stavropol archaeologists have discovered a previously unknown anomalous creature to mankind? Order not disturb the UFO, the skeleton was sent for examination.

Sergey Savenko, Pyatigorsk museum: "They found an analogy, it's even geographically not so far, this is the territory of Crimea. There have been dumping human skeleton was almost complete, but the hands and feet were cut somewhere to elbow and put in charge of the animal bones were, presumably, a goat. "

Experts anthropologists have refuted all the fantastic theories, but none of the puzzles Nevinnomyssky burial is not disclosed.

Mysterious burial can excite the imagination of not only archaeologists. Dark Ages - that is all that is known about him yet, some information about the ritual of the specialists there, perhaps because of such artifacts in the North Caucasus had been found.

For all other archaeological features Nevinnomyssk burial is typical for its era. In the afterlife of the deceased was seen off, observing the necessary rituals. The tomb was found weapons and utensils.

Sergey Savenko: "It's really kind of a unique ritual situation. Whether it was a special man, who had to bury so. "

The Adventures of archaeologists from the very beginning Nevinnomyssk bought some anti-scientific tone. Not far from the first discovery expedition accidentally unearthed the remains of a horse epic proportions. Warhorse had giant growth - almost two meters at the shoulder(1 meter ? 1.09361 yards), and was buried with honors uncharacteristic of the animal.

Anna Shvyreva, Department of Nature in the Stavropol Museum: "For this horse had been dug in the ground a special bath. It was filled with grass, and horse in the tub on his back. "
