Researchers from Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts led by Mark McMenamin, the Kraken‘s lair was discovered due to corpses of its victims. One of the Kraken‘s victim is an ichthyosaurs, considered as of the sea’s top predators with its feared teeth.

The Kraken lair discovery was scheduled for presentation at the annual meeting of the Geological Society of America in Minneapolis on Monday, October 10 by McMenamin.
