Watch: ‘Baby Godzilla’ swims underwater in incredible video503 views
A video of a marine iguana has captured the attention of the masses online for it’s uncanny resemblance to the iconic monster known as Godzilla.
Steve Winkworth captured video of a marine iguana diving to the rocky depths of the ocean off the Galapagos Islands and posted it on YouTube.
While the reptile may look like Godzilla, it’s actually a marine iguana, which are the only iguanas in the world that live on land, but forage for food in the ocean off the coast of the Galapagos Islands.
In the clip, which has been viewed over 700,000 times, the iguana dives with its arms by his side and comes up for air repeatedly.
The video, which was posted in October of 2015, became popular again after a Reddit user posted it with the title “Tiny Godzilla nomming on things underwater.”
On YouTube, many people commented that the iguana looked remarkably like a “baby Godzilla.”
YouTube user Bon Jon Tavernier posted, “Now we know how Godzilla was born.”
Another mystery solved.
