dinosaurs in the bible

Hi everyone. We were watching a documentary about dinosaurs the other day. Now I'm not questioning the existence of them but I would like to know where in the bible it mentions them. I've read about the "Leviathan" but that is a sea animal/monster like a whale (according to the bible) Can anyone tell me where it mentions dinosours?

In Job 40:15, it talks about the behemoth. Strong's concordance says it is probably an extinct dinosaur. Other sources also say it is the best description of a dinosaur that you will find in the Bible. The name dinosaur was not used back in those days for these animals.

The Bible was written by inhabitants of the Near-Middle East so you will only find animals known to them in the Bible. Not to mention that the term "Dinosaur" didn't exist until the 1840's when Sir Richard Owen described the dinosaurs. Many of the animals living today are not in the Bible either. Have you seen mention of the polar bear, or the penguins? I strongly doubt that, because Israeli did not know these animals 2000 years ago.
