 from H3867; TWOT - 1089b; n m

—Hebrew Word Study (Transliteration-Pronunciation Etymology & Grammar)

 1) leviathan, sea monster, dragon
    1a) large aquatic animal
    1b) perhaps the extinct dinosaur, plesiosaurus, exact meaning unknown

 Some think this to be a crocodile but from the description in
 Job 41 this is patently absurd. It appears to ba a large fire breathing
 animal of some sort. Just as the bomardier beetle has an explosion
 producing mechanism, so the great sea dragon may have an explosive
 producing mechanism to enable it to be a real fire breathing dragon.

—Brown-Driver-Briggs (Old Testament Hebrew-English Lexicon)

From H3867; a wreathed animal, that is, a serpent (especially the crocodile or some other large sea monster); figuratively the constellation of the dragon; also as a symbol of Babylon:—leviathan, mourning.
