An odd creature that was sighted and later described by Ambrose Pare (1517 – 1590) in his work On Monsters and Marvels. This being was said to resemble a snail but it had four hooked legs and a multi-coloured tail. It had antlers sprouting from its head with each horn ending in a spherical shape. Its eyes glowed in the dark, and it could be seen at low tide.
