According to Mark McMenamin, a paleontologist at Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts, a large Kraken-like sea monster may have existed and could have been up to 100 feet long or twice as long as a giant squid. His conclusion is based off of a fossil of a ichthyosaurs that appears to show its bones arranged in a manner that was intentional by such a predator. The arrangement also shows that the ichthyosaurs may have had its neck broken, which is a common way for squid to kill its prey or drowned.The fossil also shows marks that could be made by sucker discs.
