The ozaena means stink-polyp. The creature was named because of its offensive odor. Most Ozaenas were small in size and preferred to remain near the sea bottom. In rare instances, larger species of these polyps attacked swimmers and drowned them. One giant Ozaena that terrorized a village in Spain had a head as large as a ninety-gallon cask, and tentacles thiry feet long.
