Behavior[edit | edit source]
Appearance[edit | edit source]
The Leedsichthys is a spectacular sight for any deep-diving survivor. Nothing less than an enormous fish, the beast's cavernous maw is capable of swallowing humans whole (thankfully, the creature only feeds on minuscule fish and plankton). Its head bears light armoring to protect itself from Mosasaurus and a powerful tail capable of turning rafts into splinters propels it through the open ocean. The beast is so vast that bits of its flesh can be scraped off its body without seriously injuring it - a tactic that survivors use along with small water predators.

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]
For information pertaining specifically to the real-world Leedsichthys, see the relevant Wikipedia article
- The dossier was revealed on November 16, 2015.
- The "Great Albino Leedsichthys" mentioned in the dossier could potentially be hinting to a future boss creature in the ocean. However, it most likely is a reference to Herman Melville's novel, Moby Dick.
- Leedsicthys is believed by some scientists to be the largest bony fish that ever lived.
- The process of harvesting meat from it without killing it is a possible reference to the engineered food creatures in Dougal Dixon's Man After Man, or a scene in the BBC documentary series Chased by Sea Monsters where protagonist Nigel Marvin witnesses a still-living, albeit deathly ill, Leedsichthys having its flesh ripped off by small marine reptiles and sharks.
- The genus name of Leedsichthys means "Leed's Fish." It is named after the amateur paleontologist Alfred Nicholson Leeds, for his important finds on Leedsichthys.
