How to use "Leviathan" in context?

There are many different types of leviathans, but the most famous may be the giant sea creatures we know from mythology and stories. The largest leviathans can reach heights of up to 100 meters (328 feet) and weigh up to 150 metric tons (330,000 pounds). They are capable of diving to great depths, and some species are known to swim at speeds of up to 40 kilometers (25 miles) per hour.

Although leviathans are common in the ocean, there are also a few that live in freshwater habitats. The American alligator is one example, as is the Chinese giant salamander.
