Behemoth and Sauropod

Here’s the big one. Job 40:15-24 describes a creature called a “behemoth,” usually identified as a hippopotamus or an elephant. Sure, those are pretty big animals, but they’re probably the last two megafauna that God would describe as having a “tail like a cedar” (v. 17). Really though, unless one rejects the possibility that humans and dinosaurs coexisted, only one credible candidate for “behemoth” rears its head (high, high above the ground…).

Such a great scene. My second-favorite piece of John Williams music, behind pretty much all of the original Star Wars trilogy.
