According to Norse mythology Midgardsormr, or Jörmungandr, meaning gigantic beast, poses a great threat so Odin throws him into the ocean. But the serpent grows so large that it is able to surround the earth and grasp its own tail. During Ragnarök the beast causes a deluge resulting in submersion of the world. Afterward, the world resurfaces anew.
