Bahamut

Bahamut or Bahamot  is a vast fish that supports the earth in Arabian mythology. In some sources, Bahamut is described as having a head resembling a hippopotamus or elephant and acts as one of the layers that supports the earth.

In Jorge Luis Borges 'Book of Imaginary Beings, Bahamut is "altered and magnified" from Behemoth, and described as so immense that a human cannot bear its sight; "all the seas of the world, placed in one of the fish's nostrils, would be like a mustard seed laid in the desert."
