Army officer: Dr. Aoki, as a zoologist what would you say the beast is? Would you say it's a bird, or is it a reptile?
Dr. Aoki: I would like to say there isn't any recorded history of it...let's just call it a monster.

Another Interesting Creature Attacking Our Turtle
28 June 2003 | by (los angeles) – See all my reviews

The world of Gamera has seen this flying turtle battling many different types of creatures and Gaos is a very powerful enemy. Gaos flies and has a supersonic beam of sound that can slice any substance in the world. Gaos has one very bad habit, he likes to chew and feed on people. Gaos has one big weakness, he cannot stand being in the light of the sun. Gamera, our hero does his best to keep Gaos in the morning sun but sadly for us, fails. What can stop such a powerful enemy? Has Gamera finally met his match?
