Con Rit

Region of origin: Vietnam

Vietnamese for “Centipede,” the Con Rit was a name given to a massive multi-segmented sea cryptid sighted several times through the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, including eyewitnesses to carcasses that had washed ashore in the 1830′s and 1880′s. Most theories point to it being one form of surviving prehistoric arthropod or another, or one of their unknown relations, up from the unexplored depths. The Vietnamese sightings described the Con Rit as being about 60 feet long on average, but there was a report from a British naval vessel during the same time period of a similar creature encountered off the coast of Algeria that they estimated to be over 130 feet in length.
