The Bible tells us that all things were made by God (see John 1:3), including dinosaurs. All land animals and humans were created on Day 6 (see v. 15; Gen. 1:24–31). In this passage, God speaks about a great creature called the behemoth. Some commentators think this was a hippopotamus. However, the hippo’s tail isn’t like a large tree, but a small twig. Following are the characteristics of this huge creature: It was the largest of all the land animals God made, was plant-eating (herbivorous), had great strength in its hips and thighs, and had a tail like a cedar. It had very strong bones, lived among the trees, drank massive amounts of water, and was not disturbed by a raging river. Such a powerful creature appears impervious to attack and unable to be snared—an apt description of a large dinosaur.
