And why in some movies did Godzilla turn from the vengeful Nature Dude into
the Good Guy Hero Monster? For inquiring minds...

Gargantua! Or is there already a monster with that name?

We don't want to affect public perception of fishes like the movie Jaws did

With all the misinformation and fears that movie generated, sharks in some
places are in real trouble.

We need a NANFA version of the Lorax. "I speak for the trees" can become "I
speak for the minnows".
