    Just because we haven't seen them doesn't necessarily mean that they don't exist.
    You know like mermaids, unicorns, dragons, aliens, etc...
    But of course in reality they won't look anything like those, since unicorns and mermaids are purely from human imaginations.
    BENEATH the sea, ABOVE the clouds, FAR AWAY in outer space, those could possibly exist but we haven't discovered them yet.

    Unicorns and aliens really fit well in this category. If you look at it many mythical creature descriptions match a known animal, the manatee, white rhino, etc. Wow, with reasoning like this you must be quite the devout theist.

    I would love to think there was something a bit 'outlandish' in our world--or another.
    But do aliens get classed as mythical creatures? Haha

    most of them are probably poorly written descriptions of animals we know. For example they see a white rhino from a distance and their description makes it sound like it's a muscular horse looking thing with a horn. Or travellers may exaggerate or out right lie about what they saw to get some attention.

    The only one which interests me is dragons, as I can't see what can be mistaken for a dragon. Then also giant squids big enough to sink ships. I mean we've found ones which are big enough to sink small vessels, it's just that's not their natural behaviour. However there's a lot of lifeforms we haven't seen in the deep sea, it could be that rarely giant squid or octopus did surface and attack smaller vessels, although a full sized galleon seems a bit OTT, maybe a small wooden vessel carried 8-10 crew could be sunk?

    well then, that wraps it up.
    And that is what makes it all so special. It's a mystery, to all of us
