Inspired by my Maritime History Class! My teach taught us about why so many old sea maps were covered with sea monsters!
Before undersea diving was invented, people traveling/living on the sea would only be able to see a lot of sea life either through the water and waves (which would distort what they saw), or when a dead specimen washed ashore. Thus, a lot of old maps have fish-like armored whales with chimney spouts and sea serpents all over!
