Gamera was a titanic, fire-breathing, prehistoric species of tortoise who fed on petroleum-based material presumably giving him the ability to breathe fire and fly by “jets” ignited when the monster retracts its legs. It can propel itself by spinning through the air with all four legs in and shown in later films can fly straight with just the rear legs drawn inside its shell.
Look familiar? YAH it does! I’ve got tortie butt jets too! #GAMERAAAAA!
