This is a 3d model of an adult American eel.
This 3D model is a composite of images from an adult American eel (Anguilla rostrata) housed at the Maymont Nature Center (https://maymont.org/animals/nature-center/), and a scan from a preserved American eel from the Natural History Collection at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst (https://bcrc.bio.umass.edu/nhc/home).
CG artists Jer Bot, Johnson Martin and Robert Gutierrez used Blender to reconstruct the full fish from these scans and images, as well as animate the movements. Thanks to the Maymont Nature Center, the Richard Lewis Media Group (http://rlmg.com/), and the Natural History Collection for facilitating the work.
