* EldritchAbomination: The giant pike. Given to that its jawbone was large enough to construct a ''kantele'', it most likely would have been 14 to 16 m by length. Note that pikes are extremely aggressive and vicious predators, and fighting such a fish would have been much more a dangerous task than fighting a shark of similar size.
