Ah, Springtime, the weather is warming up. Time to take the dog, get out the johnboat, and relax with a little fishing. Yes, relax, unless of course you happen to be fishing for Rockfish!












There have been a number of such creatures postulated in fantasy and science fiction, from Frank Herberts worms, to Kevin Bacons Tremblers, and of course lets not forget the immortal words of Dr. Bones McCoy: Damnit Jim, Im a doctor, not a bricklayer!

In keeping with the theme of this board, just how likely would it be that such a creature would exist? What would be the best form? Would they be able to swim through solid rock, or would the be limited to till and sand? What would be the evolutionary path that would encourage such beasts?

I watched this short the other day and was pretty impressed with the quality of the graphics. That rockfish was massive! I really liked the way it ended and the main character's little sidekick, he was cool.

Any thoughts on the possibility of creatures that live underground like this?

First, I'd like to say that was a cool vid. LOVED the ending.

As for something like that existing here on Earth, I doubt it. Were we to have "rockfish" here, we'd have a lot more earthquakes as a result. Also, it would have to be able to easily move through solid rock. Were it in the mantle, which according to current theory is molten, that would be more believable.

However, that's now. Were something like that to evolve eventually here on Earth, I think humans would wipe it out right away, as was eluded to in the film. They would be too threatening to us, so they would go.

Sure I guess. We haven't discovered everything in the oceans yet though, we're pretty far off from finding anything in the crust.

If there was a similar creature to this, it probably somehow lives in magma.

Well I wasn't realy thinking about anything like that here on Earth. I was thinking more in general terms.

Given the average geology of planets like Earth and Mars, could such a creature evolve on another planet>

I have to say that Frank Herbert's worms of "Dune" seem the most likely, while the "Horta" of "Star Treck" seem the least logical. (pun)

yaaa the worms of dune! they lived under the sands of some far away desert and ate you if you strayed to far from the rocks. ah i loved that game. Is Dune a book too? i find it perfectly belivable for one to live under some sands of some far away desert on some alien world. you never know. It doesnt have to go by what we call "physics." nice little sidekick too.lol


i think most people thought you ment earth because you posted it in the Cryptozoology thing, wich usually means on Earth. you shoulda put it in the Aliens section. just a suggestion.

There are at least 6 books in the series:
I have read Dune and Children of the Dune, both of which were either made into movies/tv movies

This kind'a reminds me of a clip out there where a man is Ice Fising and an Orca catches him!

The closest we have to this is worms.
As for the possibiltiy of it anywhere; sure, right next to the chaos theory.

Cool! That rockfish video was rendered using software I've been helping to develop over the last 3 years

I'm happy somebody here enjoyed it!

Add me to the list of people who really enjoyed it! And I wish I could afford it, too, because I'm just starting to learn moviemaking. Alas, I'm no studio, just a starving anthropology student ... and I don't have Autodesk, either or 3D Stjudio Max.

But that was a great short film! Can you recommend any others?

The movie is awesome. As for something like that really existing, I dont know. I wonder how long it took to make that movie?
