Jewish texts refer to the Leviathan in many cases alongside the Behemoth. In these texts, the Leviathan is a dragon that lives in the depths of the oceans while the Behemoth is an equally massive land monster. The Leviathan is said to be a female, while the Behemoth is a male. Jewish sources describe the two beasts as being served up to the righteous when the end of time comes.
