Lusca

Courtesty of:  http://beastpedia.blogspot.ca

The Lusca is an oceanic cryptid sighted in the Bahamas. It seems to prefer living in brackish water, as it is usually found in warm bays and lagoons. Luscas usually appear in “banana holes,” which are saltwater pools inland that are connected to the ocean. The Lusca resembles a giant octopus, much like the Kraken. It is about 20-30 feet long and it has immense suckers for its size. In some accounts, unlike a normal octopus, it has small spines and teeth. The Lusca is very fast-moving and can propel a cloud of ink to hide itself. It is known to eat humans. No research has been done into studying the Lusca, though it may in fact be an inland-trapped population of humboldt squid. This creature matches the Lusca’s behavior, though not its size. The Lusca may also be the animal responsible for the oceanic blob-like corpses known as globsters.
