Godzillasaurus (ゴジラザウルス?, Gojirazaurusu) is a species of theropod dinosaur created by Toho Studios that first appeared in the 1991 Godzilla film, Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah. The lone Godzillasaurus that appears in the Heisei series was mutated by an atomic bomb and became Godzilla.
The Godzillasaurus is different from other theropods because its posture is more upright like a human, and it drags its tail on the ground, much like older theropod reconstructions. At 12 meters in height, it is much larger than any other theropod species (probably due to its erect posture). It has a smaller head than a real theropod, and has a double-row of teeth, much like a shark. The Godzillasaurus species is also different from other theropod dinosaurs due to the fact that it contains a second, or "sacral", brain located in its hip to control lower body functions.
As is shown in Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla 2, Godzilla seem to be telepathic, as Baby Godzilla can contact his father. However, it is unknown if an unmutated Godzillasaurus would have this ability.
Evidently the Godzillasaurus lived out in Lagos island in Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah, and was attacked by soldiers during World War II. This was observed by Futurians that had traveled back in time in a bid to remove Godzilla from history. They transported the mortally wounded creature to the Bering Sea, believing that it would die. However, they are unaware that the Godzilla they had planned to erase was later mutated by a nuclear submarine crash.
Another Godzillasaurus, Baby Godzilla, is found in Rodan's nest in Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla 2. This one seems to have been affected by nuclear energy as well, considering the fact that when it was not fully grown, it was far bigger than the seemingly adult Godzillasaurus. This is seen in Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla. This Godzilla can fire nuclear blasts, and appeared to have been a herbivore in his youth. However, in Godzilla vs. Destoroyah, this Godzillasaurus is seen eating whales.
