Zaratan is a gigantic colossal turtle that is sometimes mistaken as an island.
Over time mud and soil accumulated on its shell and bushes and trees grew on it.
Sailors would settle on what they thought was an island and light a fire and set up camp.
During the night while they slept the beast would sink beneath the waters drowning the unfortunate sailors. This creature is also said to be a whale or just some sea monster......
