This is not an island, it is a great fish, which has floated on the surface of the sea since the creation! Sands and silt have gathered on its back, and trees have grown there, but now it feels the heat of your fires! It is already stirring, and soon it will dive beneath the waves! ’ Those who had been resting leapt to their feet, and we all ran towards the ship. But the captain’s warning had come too late for some. The fish dived a moment later, and we were left amidst a chaos of cooking-pots and stoves.
Some scholars identify it with the Simurgh of Persian mythology, or even with Garuda in Indian legends; both were also big enough to carry off elephants. But Garuda was more or less a god, and the Simurgh was the king (or maybe queen) of the birds, with intelligence, speech, and mystical powers. The roc, although vengeful and clever, is basically just a very big bird. The legend may simply have originated with travellers’ tales of large eagles or vultures which grew in the telling. Another theory is that seafarers saw flightless ostriches in Africa and decided that they must be the chicks of a really big species, but the snag with that is that the ostrich used to be found in Arabia, and Arabians would have been familiar with it.
The snake came slithering, tracking us we knew not how, and when it came to the tree, it coiled round the trunk and climbed up with ease. I had reached a higher branch than my companion, and so it reached him first. It plucked him from the tree and swallowed him whole, and again I heard his bones break. Then it slipped down the tree and vanished away. The next day I descended once more to the ground, despairing of my fate. I considered casting myself into the sea, to put an end to this tale of horrors, but I could not do so.
