Cymothoa Exigua, a crustacean that eats out the tongue of a fish and replaces it with it's own body. But what happens if it gets into a human's mouth?

Done as a final project for a literature class. It's 2minutes and 10 seconds long, which makes it my longest animation to date. It was all done over the course of about four, three day weekends.



Rated 5 / 5 stars


Cool - movie's funny and thanks to you i know this tricky crustacean ;-)

I learn biology at school at higher level and many times I find some intriguing species, which - if we compare them to people and life as we know - make a great story :D
And this is just one of them.

That's why you've got ten and I hope you gonna make more of those.

the parasite just takes over the tongue and does no other damage to the host, so, the person probably wouldn't die. yet again, I don't think the parasite would ever get as large as your tongue, so that would take some getting used to. awesome flash by the way.
