Sea Monster Found

The remains of an enormous prehistoric sea monster have been found in a Peruvian desert. Known as “Leviathan Melvillei,” the animal owned teeth so large that scientists first thought they were elephant tusks.

The Levianthan lived 12 to 13 million years ago, according to scientists. It fed on large prey, possibly baleen whales. The remains will go on display at the Museo de Historia Natural in Lima, Peru.

    Thats cool. But it DID NOT live 12 to 13 million years ago, because the univirse did not exist that long ago.

    Sorry. I didn’t mean to sound like everyone knows it, but there is evidence that the earth is alot younger than some scientists say. I do not know how old the earth really is, but I know that it is not as old as most people think it is.

      Leviathan is in the Bible in a few places.It probably got there from the flood.the earth is about 6,000 years old.Learn more on Google,but type but in KJV after everything.

  13. i wish they would make a web site that showed the fossil so youcould scroll around it zoom in so this is awesome!!!!!!!am i right reply to me!

  14. Yeah, it’s not that old. It’s a fact that the carbon dating methods they use to determine the age of fossils is EXTREMELY off and is what produces dates like several million years old. It’s all because the scientists want to make it seem like they’re right with their theories.

    No one knows how old the earth is. There is good evidence for the opinion that it is young and there is good evidence that it is very old. I personally think that it is younger than most people think, but it is just a matter of opinion.

    Not to be rude to Traingo but the universe existed 19 million years ago deviliping the earth and the other planets for 5 million years.

  17. just read the bible to find out how old it might be

    I believe that there may have been such a creature as this, but it can’t be that old. It’s impossible because (according to the Bible) the Earth is only about 6,000 years old.

    • I think its only 1,000,000 years old but I could be wrong. but i think the monster is only like 10,000 years old.
      P.s. whats the deal with evalution?

  19. I don’t know how old the earth is, but i do know that this sea monster is pretty cool

    Ok everbody, the bible says God made the earth so it did not take any amount of time to form and the bible is correct. It also says the ages of many people and there decendants, so comparing that with other history the earth is only about 6,000 years old. And it is not a matter of opinion, someone is right and someone is wrong. And Darwin never even said his theory was fact, because he never proved it. It remains an unproven theory.

  21. That is cool, but it cant be that old because the Universe has only been around about 6,000 years according to the Bible which is what I believe.

  22. What else would eat other than whales?


  24. To jcracer: HOW DO YOU KNOW?


  26. I think that the Earth is 6,000 years old because the bible says
    P.S.Read the bible and you will see!

      According to the bible, the universe is 6,000 years old, so it can’t be that old. So if you said so, you’re correct!

  27. WOW……..thats sooo cool……. and i agree with “pedro says” it will come alive and eat all of us 😀
