About:
The Au79 Kraken,

This cantankerous hatch ling was captured just off the eastern shore of Crete,
where it attacked and killed an endangered Sperm Whale that was being rescued from an illegal driftnet.

It was late afternoon when we found this beautiful Sperm Whale, all rolled up in drift net.
We were cutting away big sections of the net, stated wildlife conservationist, Ignatius Polodori, who was working to free the whale.
The whale had been calm, like it knew we were helping. When all of a sudden he started shaking violently for about 2 seconds and then stopped and was dead.

No own knew what had happened to him till early the next morning when we found this Golden Kraken sleeping just inside the blow hole. It was so full it hardly moved at all as it was scooped into the containment vessel.

This Kraken is the perfect guardian for any pirate's rum,
and an interesting conversation piece for your Tiki Bar or Captain's Table.

Kraken Lore:
In a time when the gods still walked the earth, a child was born to Tethys and Poseidon.
This was the Kraken - guardian of all the world's oceans and terror to all who travelled upon them.
