Leviathan sea monster fossil found in ancient Peruvian seabed

• Terrence Aym
The fossilized skull of a gigantic sea monster that attacked and ate whales was unearthed in an ancient seabed along the arid wilderness of the Peruvian coast. The remains of the incredible creature are so huge, researchers have dubbed it "the Leviathan." The Leviathan, a terrifying behemoth of the deep, is described in the Bible's Old Testament. The Hebrews called it one of the seven princes of Hell and its gatekeeper. Those that observed it in the waters far offshore claimed the horrible thing was the most terrifying creature in existence. Long thought to be a myth, the Leviathan has been found. The fossil is well-preserved and is a testament in living stone to the terrors of the seas that early sailors faced.
