The Space Ape appeared to be a fast-growing space creature that hatched from an egg.
The space ape has dark purple eyes with green slashes on them, a lighter purple skin with light green spots and only three sharp teeth on his top jaw in the middle.
Poison touch - she had a chemical that could cause an allergic reaction. It was actually a series of tricks by Janet Lawrence. She faked the egg-hatching, then used trained Reggie the Chimp for a small form of the monster, then herself in costume as the large form. This was to prevent a space mission for which her project was not ready.
