The Bible does not mention prehistoric animals since, after all, the biblical authors had no way of knowing about them. However, the Bible does mention two 'chaos monsters', behemoth and Leviathan. We know they are chaos monsters because we now have evidence of this from other ancient Near Eastern religions. The role of chaos monsters in religion is to oppose God or gods so that their defeat completes the events of creation. We see this theme in certain psalms and (for example) in Job 41:1-2: "Canst thou draw out Leviathan with a hook [as I did] ..."
