“the aspidochelone is a fabled sea creature, variously described as a large whale or vast sea turtle, and a giant sea monster with huge spines on the ridge of its back. No matter what form it is, it is always described as being huge, often it is mistaken for an island and appears to be rocky, with crevices and valleys with trees and greenery and having sand dunes all over it. . . It rises to the surface from the depths of the sea, and entices unwitting sailors with its island appearance to make landfall on its huge shell and then the whale is able to pull them under the ocean, ship and all the people, drowning them.”
Some ideas are aspidochelones, they appear a safe base to commit to, but when you feel the ground begin to shake it’s best to board ship and sail on. Best to be lost at sea than lost at the bottom of the sea.
