Fair enough... Do you maybe have some pics for comparison?
I tried finding some on the 'net, but clear ones are hard to find as the creature hardly ever surfaces during the fight. If you'd like, I can fight
the colossus again tomorrow, take some photos, and post those.
For now, take a look at the photo and let me point some things out:
Firstly, notice the three dark lines midway down the creature (about the same area where the ruler is). In game, these are electrified spines on the
creature's back, and also denote it's weak points. You have to stab those to bring it down. Also, take a look at the bottom photo. You can see the
tentacle-like whiskers protruding from the creature's face. Of special note is the tail at the top of the photos. It's a very distinctive shape, and
is covered in hair (I've fallen off of it a number of times).
In case anyone else was curious, the other viral campaigns feature these colossi:
Syberian Giant is the 2nd Colossus:
Incan Giant is the 3rd Colossus:
And the Persian Giant is the 13th Colossus:
