Leviathan Species Ref: MORE INFO BELOW by CoffeeAddictedDragon Leviathan Species Ref: MORE INFO BELOW by CoffeeAddictedDragon
Females usually grow a bigger then the males.

Females can lay 2 to 15 orange sack like eggs in a single clutch, each about the size of a throw pillow. The mother and the father guard the eggs day and night, one goes out to hunt whilst the other guards the vulnerable eggs. Sometimes if the father is the Alpha of a male pack, the other males with be forced to guard the eggs as well. However, once the eggs hatch, the mother will chase the father and any others of his pack out of her territory as they will be considered threats against her newborns.

Adult females set up large territories and live there year round, If they don't get chased out by a more powerful female, they stay their all their lives. Males either remain wandering loners or form packs in which a single, powerful male becomes alpha and earns the right to mate with any females they may come across. This behavior is similar to that of African cheetahs.

Mothers raise their young and allow them to live in the safety of her territory until they are 2 to 3 years old. By this age, they are the size of a minivan.

The average full grown female is about the size a semi truck and a half when stretches from nose to tail.

Males and females don't mate for life.

Leviathans live all over the world except the poles.

Females lay their eggs on large undersea structures with little nooks and crannies to lay their eggs in. Sunken ships serve as a perfect spot.

Leviathans are super slippery and flexible.

Females remain gravid (pregnant) for 3 months. Eggs incubate for about 3 months. During this time, the father and any pack he governs are permitted to live in her territory.

A hormone in the coating on the eggs triggers a protective response in leviathans, weather they be the parents or not. This keeps the eggs from being eaten. However, once the eggs hatch, the hormone only remains on the young for a few days, meaning that once they are free of the eggs, the males can see the whelps as a snack. This is why the mother chases any males in her territory out with a maternal rage. The mother will continue to raise her young alone.

Thank you kindly! I am afraid they are a bit of a clased species for now since their lore is still being worked on,though it makes me so happy to hear that youd want one. ^^

Hi Star. :wave:

Well no. Good guess, but in #2 of Enounter, they deduce that it was another mer.

oooo- still would be interesting if like-
imagine yugi taking one of them down tho that would be super awesome hehe 
i actually forgot who leads the pod if Atem's not there 3.3 

aaah i just can't wait for the next chapter

:iconcoffeeaddicteddragon:
CoffeeAddictedDragon Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I can answer then for you. Yugi wouldn't be able to defeat a leviathan. An adult is so big it could swallow a man whole. Baby Leviathans are just as mean. It takes a pod to kill one, and even then it'd have huge consequences.

Also, Yami is not the leader of the pod. There are several mers called "Monarchs" that decide more or less what to do in the pod. They're less like leaders and more like advisors.

And thank you. ^^

OH WOW O_O"

Ohhh i see!
hmmm i hope yugi'll be able to reunite with Yami soon though :) 

Henry: Imagine if Mana turned out to be Yugi's sister

... ehehe muses 
Shht you

Henry: I mean they look sort of the same 3.3

- he's Henry from the duelist of roses ^w^ This muse here loves recording all sorts of magical creatures, sort of like a newt scamander XD except he doesn't take them with him XD He just likes watching and studying them instead.
