Godzilla 2014: How Can The MUTO Talk? Communication and Echolocation


MUTO meet to mate

In the 2014 Godzilla reboot, Dr. Joe Brody discovers that the M.U.T.O. (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organism) may be using a form of echolocation to communicate with another of its kind hidden in the Yucca Mountain Nuclear Waste Depository in Nevada. How exactly can a creature in Japan communicate with another all the way in Nevada? It uses ultrasound. To learn more, read my new MoviePilot article.

  1. In Godzilla Movie (2014) I think that Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organism (M.U.T.O) Uses Ultrasound to communicate with another Creature like it. Just like animals in real world use echolocation to find prey and find path. for example bats,dolphins.

    • Ultrasound is used by many animals to communicate and echolocate, this is true. The problem is that at higher frequencies, the distance the sound travels is reduced. So it is unlikely that you can use ultrasound to communicate across vast distances. A more likely candidate is infrasound. We also use infrasound to detect volcanic explosions and nuclear explosions that take place continents away; the low-frequency energy generated by these events can circle the globe, several times depending on the magnitude.
