A cryptid rarely seen in the present day, Whale Eaters are found throughout Mediterranean and Pacific coastline cultures in mythology. Similar creatures are found in Alaskan legends, suggesting a northern, Pacific variety of the cryptid.
The Whale Eater has 2 main modern pieces of evidence. The first is the U-28 incident. During WWI, sea monsters were routinely reported. One incident occurred when the German U Boat 28 torpedoed a British steamer. In the following explosion, a 60-foot long something was launched out of the water. It had 4 limbs and a pointed head.
The other clue to the Whale Eater's existence is a whale that washed up on the coast of England. The malnourished whale had apparently committed suicide, beaching itself. Why would a whale do that? Some say it was trapped between a rock and a hard place: either beach itself, or be devoured by some massive, unknown monster. This theory is supported by a strange row of wounds on the creatures jaw: they closely resemble the bite marks of an over-sized crocodile, or maybe a prehistoric mosasaur.
Appearance & DescriptionEdit
From mythological stories as well as limited modern sightings, it can be gathered that the Whale Eater is a large, 4-flippered creature. It has a crocodile-like head and a long, powerful tail.
The Whale Eater is thought to be a living mosasaur, a giant, aquatic crocodile, or maybe even a whale, just like its prey.
