The book of Jonah in the Bible mentions a big fish. I want to know the specific one. According to Wikipedia:
Interpretations of the "fish" fall into these general categories:
- A big fish or whale (of unspecified species) did indeed swallow Jonah.
- A special creation (not any fish we know of) of God accomplished the act.
- There was no fish: the story is an allegory, the fish is a literary device in the story, the story is a vision or a dream etc.
- The originators of the story did indeed intend for the story to be taken literally.
