Here Be Dragons -A Brief Look at Sea Monsters

Published: 9:26 AM - 08-15-11
On certain medieval charts, dragons or some form of sea monster appear on the margins of the parchment, in territories and oceans as yet unexplored. They served as a reminder of how little we knew and perhaps, how little we still know.

While the images of dragons are not uncommon, historically, there is only one case where the warning is literally spelled out. On the Hunt-Lenox Globe dating from the early 1500s, there is a notation near the East coast of China that reads 'HC SUNT DRACONES'- Here are Dragons.

The edge of the chart is where folklore begins. It is likewise the starting point for much of what we think of as science fiction and fantasy....

We havenít even begun to explore our seas, I remember one time fishing Icelandic waters and in the net were several flounders. Now apart from the fact flounders are rarely found in deep water these ones ranged from three foot to fourteen foot by about six foot and we got a good price for them. Now if you can get over grown flounders then no doubt other species will be found that are freaks so I can see how tales of monsters at sea can start as an ignorant reality and turn into myth over time.
