Also later known as the Remora or Mora, this was a tiny sea serpent 6 inches long but it had the ability to stop a boat in its tracks when it attached itself to the hull. It lived in the polar seas and could freeze the air with its breath. These beasts caused the Roman general Mark Anthoney to lose a navy battle when the Echeneis caught their ships making them unmoveable.
