    What do you define as a ''monster''?

    The little detail you provide would suggest anything over 20 feet...?

    Based on your criteria, all the planets whales are ''monsters''?

    Now, there are many sea creatures that are over 20 feet in length, many forms of sea life are still evolving. A sea creature evolves to its environment, its size is dependant on its survival needs... A large mass does not deem it a monster....

    In answer to your question: Is it possible for giant sea ''monsters'' to exist?

    Sure it is.... Two thirds of the surface of the planet is covered in water.. A lot of that is unmapped deep ocean. We are finding new extreme life forms every year - some living in the most hostile environments..

    It depends on what you consider a sea monster.At one time the giant squid was considered a sea monster.Fishermen have caught sea creaures that could be considered sea monsters.With the vastness of the oceans and seas,which cover a great deal of the earth,and the fact that we have not explored the oceans to definatley say that there not sea monsters is wrong.Scientests have found bodies of water under the oceans with caves that join them.What we consider sea monsters could definately come through these caves into our oceans.I am sure many sailors have seen them but without pictures they have no proof so they say nothing.

    The oceans have not been charted completely so there is plenty of room for sea monsters over 20 feet long to exist.

    There may be additional species of cetaceans, fish or squid living in the oceans that have not been officially described yet and are over 20 feet long. However, they are likely to be fairly similar to species that are already known. The chances that there is any large organism in the oceans (or anywhere on Earth, for that matter) drastically different from what we know are vanishingly small. We have charted too much of this planet for something like that to go unnoticed.

    Well, ..., Giant Squid have finally been verified as existing in the Ocean, So yes. it is quite possible. What the ancients used to call, "Giants" or Monsters are terms that were used to group creatures that hadn't been cassified by ancient man. Later, we began calling them dinosaurs or classifying them according to there types. The Giant Squid is a perfect example.

    I don't quite know how this got to Astronomy and Space, but anyway....there are a LOT of aquatic creatures that live at depths we have not yet reached. And even those we HAVE reached, we have not been able to see much less catalog all the types that are down there. Is it possible? Most definitely. I would not exactly refer to them as "MONSTERS" though. For example, the biggest squid ever recorded was about 60 feet long. That isn't a monster...just a big squid!

    Possibly, we have not scoured the oceans of the world looking for them so it is possible that some kind of "sea monster" has evolved.

    Yes, much of the World's oceans remain uncharted and unexplored and there are many species to be discovered especially in the deep sea.

    i think giant sea monsters is a special animal in sea, which is more ferocious than other animal in sea, but not a monster.
