87. Leprechaun: around the height of a small child, with a red beard and clothed in a green suit (although in older days the suit was said to be red), a Leprechaun spends his days making shoes. He is a magical creature who hides his coins in a pot of gold which is stored at the end of a rainbow. When a ladder falls over, a toe is stubbed or another ‘unlucky’ event occurs, it is actually the fault of the Leprechaun, who loves to play practical jokes on us. If you catch a Leprechaun however, he will grant you three wishes in exchange for his release - although choose wisely, as things don’t always turn out the way you plan...
Both locals and visitors to the island have reportedly seen this ape which walks on two feet like a human. Said to be around one metre tall, and covered in grey-brown fur, this legendary creature is in fact said to have a ‘high possibility of actual existence’ by scientists who have studied the stories of the beast and its local environment. 60. Kraken: first referred to in an Old Icelandic saga called Orvar-Oddr, the Kraken is a sea monster of giant proportions. Whereas many have scoffed at tales of a manylegged sea creature of humongous size, the relatively recent discovery of a species we refer to as a colossal squid (which can grow up to fifteen metres long), stories of the Kraken no longer seem as unlikely as they once did!
76. Hydra: specifically the Lernaean Hydra referred to in the labours of Heracles, this monster had multiple heads, of which should one be cut off, two would grow in its place. With such poisonous breath and blood that even its tracks could kill, the serpent-like creature guarded an entrance to the underworld. It was only defeated when Heracles realised that if he burned the stump of a neck after cutting off a head, none would grow back. Despite a giant crab being sent to get in his way (which the hero stomped to death), Heracles eventually managed to cut off all of the Hydra’s heads.
