Terrible Beasts, or Denotheria, is the name that scientists give to an extinct creature that humans probably took inspiration from the one-eyed antichrist story.

Research indicates that the inspiration of this wondrous creature, with its different details across cultures and peoples, is a creature that wandered around the earth in ancient times and is known as (Denotherium Jagantum), which translates into “the terrible animal”, and these creatures are called in Arabic as Denotheria.

This creature is very similar to elephants, and it is more likely that it is a relative of elephants, as it belongs to the Trichomonas family, except that Nabih is located in its lower jaw and reaches a height of about 5 meters.

This creature became extinct more than a million years ago, so how did it happen to inspire these cultures?

In fact, it is believed that his remains are what inspired the legend of the one-eyed giant.

The skull of this object contains a large void in the middle of it.

Today we know of course that this vacuum is the result of the existence of the hose before it decomposes, but our ancestors decided to let their imagination run wild as they did when they interpreted many other phenomena such as the occurrence of volcanoes, earthquakes, water scarcity etc and it was the closest they could.

They explain to him those gigantic remains whose existence they attribute to a crushing, destructive and bloody monster wreaking havoc on the earth but the truth is that Denothirim was a vegetarian and a skilled swimmer and here the myth of the stench is broken.
