But I though we said it looked like Clover, not a turtle. :|

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis

Cloverfield's design was based on that of a shell-less turtle

I've been Googling "Cloverfield turtle" and can't find anything official (i.e. - from the production staff, rather than the fans) on the creature being based on a shell-less turtle. Can someone point me in the right direction? :|

I remember the director saying it. It may have been something else and my mind's blurring them together, though..

I came up with a few names:
Deathsaurus
Trailbreaker (If he stepped on a trail, chances are he'd break it!)
Striker
Bruticus
Menasaur
Runamuck (I like this one!)
Chaos
Rumble (His front legs look like Rumble's arms in the earthquake mode!)
Overkill
Slugfest (Looks kinda like a slug, right?)
Strongarm (leg joke)
RipperSnapper
Gutcruncher
Pounce
Wingspan (another leg joke)
Brawn
