Livyatan 2.png

Livyatan is a giant cetacean close to the sperm whale. He live in group like the latter. But unlike the sperm worm, Livyatan has teeth in both his lower jaw but also his upper jaw. These teeth are large and strong which allows him to tackle large prey. Lyviatan feeds big fish but also sharks, dolphins and other whales. This whale is in rivalry with the giant shark megalodon.

Trivia[edit | edit source]


Contrary to what is shown in the documentary, "Jurassic Fight Club", Brygmophyseter, a member of the Lyviatan family, is much smaller (7 meters long and not the 13 meters), he would have a prey and not a rival for the megalodon. Ironically, its exaggerated size corresponds well, unintentionally, to the Lyviatan, which was discovered much later.
