The Volcano Leviathan is clearly Levias from the distinctive skull plate but I have a harder time placing the other two.

It's got two tiny wings on the top of it.
This post is my Elegy for the Wind Fish.

I've never played the game that the volcano Leviathan is referencing, but that the Leviathans are all different creatures and references is somehow more horrifying and sad.

Actually I think the Hebra Great Skeleton is more likely the Wind Fish due to also having small wings and a skull that is closer to that of a blue whale.

Gerudo Great Skeleton might be Valoo? It looks more bird-like or draconic than a whale.

I haven't found that one yet. I guess I'll get another chance to be really sad!

I think that one's the Hebra one, since it's partially submerged.

I love that the leviathan photography quest involves a bunch of guys trying to make sense of the history of Hyrule and basically going "Nothing makes sense!!!"

Hyrule's geologists must be really confused.

I like how I have combed over the entire Hebra region and have somehow missed a huge-ass skeleton.

Don't beat yourself up, you have to roll a snowball down a hill, over a pond you use Cryosis on to make a bridge, and into a door in the side of a mountain. It's kinda nuts.

Yeah, and I'm not sure where people get the wherewithal to put a hundred hours in it. At 55 hours I loved almost every minute but I beat it precisely when I was ready to be done.

hahaha, nah, it's cool. The great thing about the game is you can put in just about whatever time you wnat into it. I really stretched it out, truth be told. I could have beaten it in 50 or less, I'm sure. But I wanted to go for the full-shrine clear, and did as many side quests as I could stand along the way. Like that, I pretty much curb-stomped the back half of the game. I look forward to doing it again faster and with some self-imposed challenges.

Which raises the question of what happens if you screw up your provided snowball supply. Doesn't seem like the kind of game that would just hand over new ones immediately, so do you return after a day or something to find them respawned?

I would teleport in-out. Save/reload would probably have worked too.

It's crazy finicky, since the route I found meant the ball was still pretty small when going over the pond, so tiny changes in placement of my Cryonis blocks meant it bounced or got stuck rather than rolling smoothly.

So, funny story. I had a hell of a time with that. I was using a flame sword to cheat the cold, walked over to the snowballs, picked one up, lined up my roll.... And then melted them all. Or something like that, I forget the order of events. Basically, I just plopped down a marker and teleported somewhere else and eventually came back. No idea how long it takes to come back

In my own experience it seemed like most interactive objects would reset/respawn after Link moved a few hundred yards away from their immediate area.
