Warning: If you haven't seen The Mandalorian's Chapter 18, this article contains SPOILERS so read at your own risk!
The latest episode of The Mandalorian Season 3 just changed everything we thought we already knew about the Mandalore race. During the closing moments of the eighteenth chapter, it was revealed that the Mythosaur still exists. The legendary gargantuan was believed to have been extinct following the fall of Mandalore but it turns out that it's been residing in the living waters, possibly just waiting to be rediscovered.
After Din takes a dip into the waters and seemingly gets devoured by it, Bo-Katan comes to his rescue and they stumble upon a massive creature that has seemingly been awakened in what was an equally terrifying and astonishing sight. Much to Bo-Katan's shock, it turns out to be the Mythosaur and she quickly pulls Din out of the waters.
If you may recall, the creature's ties to the Mandalorian race were briefly explored in The Book of Boba Fett Chapter 5, with The Armorer telling Din about the prophecy that says: "The songs of eons past foretold of the Mythosaur rising up to herald a new age of Mandalore".
Even The Armorer believes that the Mythosaur is nothing more than a legend but she's definitely in for the surprise of her life when she finds out.

Interestingly, fans are beginning to theorize that the Mythosaur has laid dormant in the living waters for thousands of years, suggesting that it was only awakened from its deep sleep after sensing that the true ruler of Mandalore was around. Now, whether it's Din Djarin or Bo-Katan remains to be seen.
The Mandalorian Season 3's second episode is now available to stream on Disney+.
