The Lusca is the legendary monstrous octopus of Bahamian folklore that has inspired terror in the hearts of generations of local fishermen. It is believed to lurk among the deep waters of the inland caverns and blue holes that are found on Andros Island. It is reported that any encounter with this extraordinary beast almost always results in the death of whoever is unfortunate enough to wander too close to its watery lair. This extends not only to intrepid divers, but also to fisherman whose boats are yanked below, and those unwary souls who stand too close to the shoreline, as the Lusca has been known to use its deadly arms to drag even earthbound victims to their watery graves.
