The Bible describes a frightening, huge creature that lived in the sea. Called Leviathan, it had fearsome teeth and armor-plated scales that spears and arrows could not penetrate. A Norse legend tells of a colossal sea creature with many arms that could capsize a sailing ship. In 1918, a group of lobster fishermen in Port Stephens, Australia, reported an encounter with “an immense shark of almost unbelievable proportions.”
Fossil evidence shows that the oceans once teemed with sea monsters, and some are still alive today.
