Hello everyone,

i'm new to this board so first i'd like to introduce myself :)

Sorry for my broken english, that's not my native language.

i'm studying interactive media and currently i work on an Short Infographic-Animation about Graboids. During my research i thought it would be helpful to ask the fanbase about details.

so here i am and bringing up this old topic.

today i thougt about the orgin of graboids. What did you think about this theorie, i keep it short:

- the Graboids are an extraterrestrial life-form and came to earth like descriped in this Hypothesis:
- Graboids evolve to this big worms during Precambrian. Deep underground they got great resistance agains variation in temperature and big pressure
- underground, they could survive the iceage and asteroid impacts
- the changing climate let them move up
- eating people and animals, flooded them with so many vitamins that Graboids evolve to shriekers and so on


another point i'd like to ask you: i read that the graboid is based on the mongolian deathworm (). i think there are not realy connections between both, so i think wikipedia is wrong in this case.

kind regards
Frank

Devonian era creatures

Tremors was an attempt to recreate the B Movie monsters of the 50s.

The last Universal Monster was the Gillman. He is from the DEVONIAN era.

Ergo, the Graboids are from the Devonian era. Still not convinced, check out this image of a Devonian whale and tell me it's skull isn't weirdly reminiscent of a graboid:

Those jaws sure remind me of a Shrieker, and the armored head- clearly a cousin of the graboid...

Um Dunkleosteus is a placoderm fish not a whale. It was about the size of a whale though.

What an absolute delight to read your note. Thank you for all the wonderful complements I adore flattery (whoops) I mean, thank you so much.
