The Mystery Bones of Infant Island (インファント島の怪骨,   Infanto-jima no kai kotsu?) is a turtle kaiju created by Toho that first appeared in the 1964 Godzilla film, Mothra vs. Godzilla.


The official name for Skeleturtle, "Mystery Bones of Infant Island," is a translation of the name for the creature found in a 2012 toy of it,[1][2] which reads "Infanto-jima no kai kotsu." Skeleturtle is a fanmade nickname, created by Chris Mirjahangir of Toho Kingdom,[3] before the official name was known. The other nickname for the creature, "Kame no Gaikotsu," was created by Miles Imhoff, also from Toho Kingdom.[3] Officially licensed t-shirts featuring Skeleturtle that were sold in Japan refer to the creature in English as "Infant Island's Kai Kotsu."


Skeleturtle is purely white and gray, with black eyes, and a bland, pale shell with no visible scutes. It has a fairly long neck, and very short limbs, which have tiny bone fragments visible.


Skeleturtle's direct origins are unknown, but it's possible that it was either a turtle mutated by radiation on Infant Island or a turtle of an unknown species.

Mothra vs. Godzilla

Skeleturtle made a very short appearance on Mothra vs. Godzilla, lasting only about 38 seconds on screen and in the background. It was found on Infant Island, which had a lot of radiation and lifeless skeletons lying around. None of the characters ever directly interact with or notice it.
