the behemoth was not a crocodile or hippo. It was clearly a dinosaur. Clearly, we don't understand all, this was not either due to the details description in the remaining of chapter 40 and the leviathan in chapter 41 was a dragon. Read Daniel 14. Not included in the King James but in the catholic bible. Just a few details to focus in on. The scales, the tail as a tree? Yes the croc has scales, but neither have a tail as large as the Sypris tree.

Dont know if a crocidile or hipo was one of the largest animals in those times.

If you beleive genesis...age of the earth was only a few thousand years old in those days.

Might have been a dinosaur...revered to as dragon in those days in the bible.
