Those eyes.....

That picture reminded me of specifically how weird it is when you notice the Kong suit with the oversized head is used in the water scenes. I’m guessing they didn’t want the actor to drown??? Or needed a larger head for the serpent to wrap around?
Then, everything changed when the Giant Condor became the Giant Eagle.

It’s a shame that the Giant sea Serpent wasn’t put in the film just a little bit more.
And yeah that’s cool but it’s not in the actual film is it?
