Schistosoma haematobium (urinary blood fluke) mated pair (WIP)
Models created with 3ds Max and ZBrush for the urinary blood fluke animation.
After blood fluke larvae hatch, males (brown) and females (purple) pair off, with the larger males cradling the thinner females within their gynaecophoric canal.
The mated pair travel through the blood vessels until they reach the arteries surrounding the bladder. This is where the female will lay her eggs.
