Talk:Behemoth

From CreationWiki, the encyclopedia of creation science
Jump to: navigation, search

Just out of curiosity, how could a giant sauropod be "hidden among the reeds in the marsh"? It seems that only its foot could be hidden there. Scorpionman 11:48, 27 August 2007 (EDT)

There are quite a few known species of small sauropod Dinosaurs, such as Europasaurus, Ohmdenosaurus, Magyarosaurus and Brachytrachelopan. It may also be that behemoth was actually a juvenile specimen of one of the larger sauropod species.

about behemoth being a sauropod

I don't want to appear to be anti-creation or anything, but I would like to point out that what it says in the Bible is that:

1.Behemoth's tail 'moveth like cedar',not that it was like cedar. 2.Sauropods would not have been able to go up mountains, due to having insufficient lungs and would have been more suited to low land plains.--Kiani francis 09:17, 25 October 2010 (PDT)

1. Actually a very good description of how a sauropod's tail moves. As sauropod Dinosaurs walked along, their tails would have swayed gracefully from side to side - just like a cedar tree does when it moves in the wind.
2. Concerning the sauropod Dinosaur Brontomerus: (http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/02/110223071203.htm)
"sauropods preferred drier, upland areas; so perhaps Brontomerus lived in rough, hilly terrain and the powerful leg muscles were a sort of dinosaur four-wheel drive."
