Inscription:
There is a large beast in the darkness that dives several kilometers under the ocean. Its body is black and its skin is as strong as steel. Its eyes are on the tips of the fins on its back. Its back has holes that birth small fish that can jump higher than the clouds. It is called Ting Du.
