In the book of Job it describes two mysterious creatures. They are in 40:15-24 and 41:1-34. I think the behemoth is a brachiosaur and that the leviathan is a plesiosaur. Here are the verses describing the behemoth: Look at the behemoth, which I made along with you and which feeds on the grass like an ox. What strength he has in his loins, what power in the muscles of his belly! His tail sways like a cedar; the sinews of his thighs are close-knit. His bones are tubes of bronze, his limbs like rods of iron. He ranks first among the works of God, yet his Maker can approach him with his sword. The hills bring him their produce, and all the wild animals play nearby. Under the lotus plant he lies, hidden among the reeds in the marsh. The lotuses coceal him in their shadow; the poplars by the stream surround him. When the river rages, he is not alarmed; he is secure, though the Jordan should surge against his mouth. Can anyone capture him by the eyes, or trap him and pierce his nose?" The behemoth is said to be an elephant by evolutionists. However, it says the behemoth eats grass like an ox. The ox does not have a trunk to pull the grass up, like an elephant. But a brachiosaur does. Both have strength in their loins to hold them up. But for muscles in his belly that must describe how the brachiosaur swallowed stones to grind its food. I would like to strt here and move on.
