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


This is one of the funniest parasite-related cartoons I've ever seen. It's also well drawn and smoothly animated, and the voice acting is amazing. This is fantastic work.
