Originally known as the Echeneis, 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 Anthony to lose a navy battle when the Mora caught their ships making them unmoveable.
