# Are kaiju more probable if they aren't carbon-based lifeforms?

I don't know the science involved, so I'm hoping someone else does. But is it more probable a giant creature of that size and capability would be more likely to exist if it were, say, a silicon-based lifeform? Or maybe arsenic? I'm not sure what element would make the most sense on the periodic table, or if it doesn't make a difference. I'm just trying to find a potential way around stuff like, say, kaiju would probably be crushed under their own weight, their lungs would collapse, their metabolism would be out of control, etc.

• I'm not sure science-based is an appropriate tag. I think reality-check matches the question better. – user535733 Oct 12 '18 at 19:30
• What kinds of Kaiju are we talking about? How tall are they? Do they Fly and shoot laser beams? – Sasha Oct 12 '18 at 19:32
• @user535733 science based is fine. This touches math, physics and biology. – Renan Oct 12 '18 at 19:32
• Could the kaiju bodies be full of pockets of helium or hydrogen, to counteract their weight? – BrettFromLA Oct 12 '18 at 23:52
