The other day, someone brought to light that the way the MUTO flapped its wings, it couldn't possibly be an insect. Insects flap their wings at a rather incredible speed. The MUTO looks to have more of a bird or bat's wing physiology.
As someone who studies animal behavior and biology (by hobby, hopefully profession one day), I couldn't believe what I had thought up. I initially said "No, hah- there's no.....no way..." and then when you line the MUTO and my animal up together, their head shapes are oddly similar. The Alligator Snapping Turtle
Now, am I saying the MUTO is Gamera in disguise?!? No. But it looks like the design and physiology of these creatures came from both insects and reptiles with emphasis on the reptilian look.
We always thought the MUTOs looked very alien.....But it seems as if their design is from fairly real animals!
It obviously makes sense, seeming that reptiles/forms of birds, dinosaurs and insects were really all could survive in the very prehistoric world.
Let me know what you think the MUTO is a combination of!
This is from the IMDB trivia page of Godzilla which could give us a good idea of how long he's in the film!!!!
There are 960 visual effects shots through the whole film, 327 of which are of Godzilla whose 3D model is made up of 500,000 polygons. Had the computer graphics been designed only on a single computer, it would have taken 450 years to render
