Have you ever taken a moment of your time to engage in or participate in reading any of the Ernest Drake books? Any of the Dragonology series?
Well unite here under his studies!

Ah, yes!
Pirateology is very good, having read it also, but has much less, or none at all, Steampunk than Dragonology! I suggest giving it a read, you probably can't read it in store as they come wrapped in a clear plastic film because there's lots of pockets with 'props' in them, trés bien!

While I cannot claim familiarity with the works of Drake, I do have a certain amount of vested interest in the various members of the family Draco (very slight knowledge of D. Europa and D. Sinensis and an increasing knowledge of D. humanis). Would that qualify me for membership here?

I'll have to be brief since time is rather at a premium but, D.humanis is, in my experience, quite large (both tall and heavy) with scaly skin, and marked predilections for hot food, and small shiny objects. To date, I have seen no evidence of ability to fly, but the species does show a strong affinity for immersion in water and seems to be (on the basis of a single individual observed) a powerful swimmer.

... and seems to be  a powerful swimmer.

Is it a leviathan? Or perhaps a relative, is a leviathan in the Draco. Family?

An interesting question. I would say it exhibits sufficient common characteristics to qualify in the broadest sense as human, but the question of whether Leviathan belongs in the Draco family may have to wait until specimens can be examined. Given that the giant squid once scoffed at as sailors tales, have now been examined in the laboratory, I am confident that there are still creatures to be discovered and perhaps Leviathan is among them?

It is surprising that larger beasts are less common that smaller beasts, ants horde in their millions while Leviathan may be spread out with less then a ha'dozen in the Pacific alone if I had to guess, either that or they spend most of their time undersea. Also would you know if they were slow or fast, seeing as they are several kilometres long

well, i have read the field guide, and the original, big dragonology book. i own both. but since there's only those two available in denmark, i will have to order the other ones. i simply love those books. they look so professional. so real, with the coffee marks. hah. its awesome.
