Caption: Sea serpent attacking a ship, 19th-century artwork. Accounts of large sea serpents may have been based on exaggerated observations of large marine creatures such as oarfish or whales. This artwork is based on the 16th-century depiction published in 'Historiae de gentibus septentrionalibus' (History of the Northern Peoples, 1555) by the Swedish theologian and writer Olaus Magnus (1490-1557). Artwork from 'Mythical Monsters' (1886) by British geologist Charles Gould (1834-1893).
