Disney cartoons

See You Real Soon by Bossy Marmalade

How to Train Your Dragon

blinded by the sun by Akamine Chan

'WheatWyrms are found almost exclusively in grain silos, slithering among the grains of wheat, building up a slight electrical charge that they use to shock their rodent prey.'

The Incredibles
