In one legend, Echidna ate people who passed close to her cave, until one day she was killed by Argus Panoptes, a three-hundred eyed giant. 79. Cyclops: although the word Cyclops in fact means ‘roundeyed’, this race of giants only had one eye each, according to the Greek author Homer, who tells of how Odysseus blinded the Cyclops Polyphemus with a long stake. Some have speculated that the legend of the Cyclops may have come from ancient people finding the skull of a dwarf elephant; the single hole in its middle (actually for the trunk) would have looked to them like an eye socket in a giant head.
59. Orang Pendek: another creature akin to Bigfoot, Orang Pendek is said to inhabit the mountainous forests on the island of Sumatra. Both locals and visitors to the island have reportedly seen this ape which walks on two feet like a human. Said to be around one metre tall, and covered in grey-brown fur, this legendary creature is in fact said to have a ‘high possibility of actual existence’ by scientists who have studied the stories of the beast and its local environment. 60. Kraken: first referred to in an Old Icelandic saga called Orvar-Oddr, the Kraken is a sea monster of giant proportions.
Skunk Ape: essentially the Bigfoot of South-eastern USA, the Skunk ape is also referred to as the Swamp Ape, Stink Ape or Myakka Ape. A foul-smelling hominid, this ape-like creature who walks on two legs has even been captured on camera (although some dispute the photos, saying they have been manipulated). 64. Glawackus: the lumberjacks of early 20th century North America say this creature looked like a cross between a bear, a lion and a panther. Said to have attacked livestock in Connecticut and Massachusetts, the animal has never been caught despite a number of expeditions to find it.
