These drawings are by American naturalist and zoologist, Addison Emery Verrill. He based his detailed illustrations on photos taken of the famous St. Augustine Monster. Verrill originally claimed that this globster was a species of gigantic octopus which he called the Octopus giganteus. Years later, he went back on this and said the carcass was a piece of a sperm whale.
