300-feet tall with a deafening roar and feet the size of whales, the new Godzilla is one enormous beast. In fact, it’s one of the largest on-screen kaiju of all time. But no need to fear: no animal on Earth ever gets Godzilla-sized, and for good reason.
In this Nerdist Special Report, I dig into the biology of Godzilla — its blood pressure, its bones, its reaction time — to see just how monstrous The King of the Monsters would really have to be.
