The Timingila is a huge aquatic creature that can swallow whole whales in one bite (the word itself means whale-swallower in Sanskrit), as written about in the ancient historical text, Mahabharata (Vana Parva 168.3). It is also mentioned in Srimad Bhagavatam (12.9.16), Ramayana (Yuddha-kanda 4.114), Susruta Samhita (Ch.45), and Caitanya-caritamrta (Madhya-lila 13.142).
