Most scholars agree that Job is the oldest book in the Bible. But there is something else mysterious about Job. Wait for it . . DINOSAURS ! boom chaka lakaa. I'm telling you; maybe just maybe there is a reference to a dinosaur in Job and his name was Behomoth (I know, wicked name right?). Check it out:

Job 40:15-24
15 “Look at Behemoth,
which I made along with you
and which feeds on grass like an ox.
16 What strength it has in its loins,
what power in the muscles of its belly!
17 Its tail sways like a cedar;
the sinews of its thighs are close-knit.
18 Its bones are tubes of bronze,
its limbs like rods of iron.
19 It ranks first among the works of God,
yet its Maker can approach it with his sword.
20 The hills bring it their produce,
and all the wild animals play nearby.
21 Under the lotus plants it lies,
hidden among the reeds in the marsh.
22 The lotuses conceal it in their shadow;
the poplars by the stream surround it.
23 A raging river does not alarm it;
it is secure, though the Jordan should surge against its mouth.
24 Can anyone capture it by the eyes,
or trap it and pierce its nose?

Notice how it compares Behomoth's tail to a cedar . We know for a fact that cedars were considered very big in the Bible.

Psalms 92:12
The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon (would this verse make much sense if it were referring to a small or medium sized tree?)

Other verses are Isaiah 2:13 and 37:24

Honestly i can' think of another animal with a tail that big although other theories include crocodiles and hippopotamuses . But seriously? where is the fun in that ! It's obviously a dinosaur <3
