Huge animal.

  1. There's something about that word that just suits its meaning. Even the pronunciation of the word has a "massive" feel to it.

  2. That would be a good word to sneak into a book.

  3. While reading Colin Meloy's "Wildwood" I noticed this word. My husband also used it in his blog last week - I just had to pass it along as well!

  4. Yes, I like this word! I agree that it just "sounds" huge and unwieldy. :)

    1. Celeste - This word "Behemoth" has stirred up a lot of buzz today! I'm sure you do not have behemoth feet! ^_^

  6. I love this word, too. I can easily imagine the sort of creature this would refer to, something immense and hairy.
