#2 in my favorite Kaiju designs, comes the jungle turtle from "Space Ameoba" (a.k.a. "Yog Monster from Space").
As with most underused monsters, Kamoebas or Kameba, stirs interest. His bizarre accordion neck attack, strange lumpy shell, and creepy hissing roar, make for a creature distinct from the "other rival kaiju turtle". But hey, I'm a sucker for turtles, so what can you do?
For years, I've read about 'Space Ameoba" since first playing the NES Godzilla game and fighting Gezora. Its a movie that had eluded me for more than a decade until it was released on DVD a few years back. Up until then, i heard about how "lousy" the movie was. But I was surprised how much I liked. It was anothe non-Godzilla Toho flick, and it's monsters had crossover appeal for a shared universe. The biggest embellishment, is Kamoebas' cameo in Tokyo S.O.S.
