I love this story! It is old, it comes from the 2nd Centry, probably from Greece. Sailors mistake sleeping whales for islands. They would tether their ships to the “island”, disembark and set up camp. The whale would then plunge to the depths of the ocean sinking all the ships and drowning the sailors.
