When you read this blog post, you all have to promise me one thing: hum the theme song from Jaws  as you continue reading. In case you didn't know - it's Shark Week . But if you think the terrors of the ocean are limited to sharks, think again. The sharks are most definitely the least of our worries. As Percy Jackson's exploits in The Sea of Monsters prove, supposedly mythological creatures from the deep can rise up and attack at any time. From giant squids, sea snakes, and sirens just waiting to sink your boat, check out some of the most terrifying stories of the ocean below….that is, if you dare to listen to them!
