DECEPTION ISLAND - Google Earth is getting a lot of attention right now because people think they've spotted a giant monster in the ocean.

Specific coordinates take you to a spot in the water, near Deception Island, off the coast of Antarctica.

Monster hunters claim the image seen on the map is a 400-foot squid-like creature.

Conspiracy theorists are calling it a Kraken while others say it's simply rocks... But what fun is that?

The Huffington Post reported Andrew David Thaler of Southern Fried Science posted a nautical chart showing the location of the rock as well as an image of the rock itself.

The rock is nearly 100 feet tall, and it’s located in the same place as “the thing” on Google Maps.
