Actually, the Leviathan is supposed to be associated with Satan.
Then again, isn't everything in Christianity?
I always pictured it as some kind of serpent. But I don't know what I would really be. I don't believe any of them exist though
Biblically speaking I dont see any association between Satan and Leviathan. Satan and Leviathan are both in the Book of Job and no connection is ever made between the two.

His tail hardens like a cedar; the sinews of his tendons are knit together.
it looks like a dragon
leviathan and behomoth both have a lot to do with the elements, alchemy, and creation. God is proud of them because they took what he gave us all and made something more out of it, that's why they were given those gifts. The elements aren't separated they all four are realative. God has the key to the fire, I can't tell you that secret but if you can get through those two. I don't know anything about ziz. Probably a pidgeon that flies at night.

....coming in a bit late. here's a thought you may not have considered: these are creatures of three of the four elements- leviathan/water, behemoth/earth, ziz/air; so where is the fourth-fire?? many theologions(sp?) consider yahweh to be a FIRE deity, who was depicted well into the hellenistic period as a serpent. (refer to exodus where moses is commanded by yahweh to raise a bronze serpent on a column to cure the hebrews of the snake bites afflicting them, the bronze serpent is mentioned throughout the OT to the books of the prophets where it is finally declared a pagan idol and destroyed. one may also refer to joseph campbell's occidental mythology. snake venom is often described as FIRE in the veins). so with yahweh we now have all four elements of creation in play. is it possible that at some point in the distant past there was four sects of hebrew belief with one eventually winning the population?? or could this be a veiled reference to early alchemy??? just a thought or two... thanks for listening.
