Danger Level: High. However, although Gorgo is huge and often lethal, it is his momma you should be really concerned about
Identification: Imagine a 65-foot cute and cuddly baby dinosaur. Now forget this image and imagine a Tyrannosaurus Rex on steroids. The latter is Gorgo.
How to Avoid: Gorgo really wants to be simply left alone, but being nothing more than a little kid, Gorgo constantly gets into trouble with humans. Most of human-Gorgo encounters happen near the Irish shore, and usually are provoked by humans. When traveling to this beautiful country remember that Ireland is not famous for its beaches, so do yourself a favor, and stick to the pubs.
Suggested Actions in Case of Encounter: Do not, I repeat, do not try to capture Gorgo. Even if you succeed in capturing this freak of nature, you would still have to deal with his momma. Not to mention the fact that capturing this endangered specie could tip the balance of the fragile Atlantic eco-system.
Suggested Killing Techniques: Although extremely young, Gorgo is not easy to dispose of. Shooting him produces no effect whatsoever. It is much easier to keep him at bay with a few torches or an electric fence.
