20,000,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA (Level 3)

It was 1867. Some sailors said they saw a dangerous, giant monster living in the cold waters of the ocean. Some ships tried to find and kill it, but they never returned.
People said it looked like a whale.
"It was 300 feet long and a mile wide!"
"Water come out of its back. It was alike a big, underwater explosion."
