'Before my eyes was a hideous monster, swimming backwards with enormous speed towards the ship, staring with its huge glassy eyes. It had eight legs growing out of its head, twisting about like the Gorgon's snaky locks... Its horny beak opened and shut, and from it darted a hard tongue armed with several rows of sharp teeth. Its bloated body must have weighed twenty tons.'
