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!

 

 

ALSO

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

This topic was brought up earlier this week.

 

That being said, I don't think it's reptilian or insect, but something that's been lost to time.

Much like a dinosaur that was neither reptilian or bird. Just something lost to time. Interesting. It's all incredibly interesting.

I think the most alien thing with the Muto's are those eyes......they look pretty different to me......almost mechanical. The other body parts and anatomy look like a hodgepodge from a scavenger hunt. Looks pretty decent though from the brief looks we may have seen from the trailers.

I don't think it is an insect or a reptile. But if the MUTOS are mutated from an insect or a reptile, well that's a diferent story, but I don't think they are mutated from real life animals because it is Massive"Undenified" Terrestrial Organism.

GTBETTA35 - I happen to believe the MUTOs are a completely unique series of life-forms that, while comparable to others, are in an order all of their own. :)

I think the MUTO's are both reptilian and insect.

I used to think they were types of arthropods, but then I found out the they had complete skeletons. I'm guessing they're reptiles, or at least some sort of synapsid
