  1. According to his Vimeo comments –

    "I studied interactive media…and animation plus computer science are fields you learn at Augsburg. "

  2. What degree is he going for? I hope it's not biology; he referred to the grabiod as both a reptile and an invertebrate.

  5. Are you commentators serious? This is a joke…it's not a real documentary on graboids…why do you have to nitpick, why can't you just accept that this guy was really clever in what he did. He's probably getting a degree in some sort of media, hence a video about a fake creature from Tremors.

    • Again, it is you who is missing the point. This video is attempting to inform the audience about this creature in a realistic manner, so misusing scientific terms damages the effect the author is trying to achieve.

    • His point is, real or not, those are two mutually exclusive terms. Reptiles are, by definition, vertebrates. Such a contradiction would not be so much of a problem if this were fantasy, but it isn't; it is science fiction. Though it is about a fictional animal, the video is attempting to treat the subject in a realistic manner. So, making such a fundamental zoological error is a problem. Otherwise, the video is quite well made.

      By the way, when did "this video or story contains elements that are not real, therefore any criticism of its logical flaws or factual errors are invalid" become such a common viewpoint? Your kind has become distressingly common, especially in the forums of science fiction and fantasy films over on IMDb, and you all seem to have an obnoxious, abrasive way of expressing your views.
