Proboscis cell.png

The Proboscis is a mouth available in the Cell Creator and Early Creature Creator of Spore for cells and creatures to possess, costing over 25 DNA to add to the creation.


Cell Stage[]

An example of a cell (Nosey) possessing the Proboscis part.

In the Cell Stage, the Proboscis is the only unlockable mouth, it can be obtained by killing a cell that has the Proboscis mouth part or by witnessing the death of said cell while it is on screen. Functionally, the Proboscis allows the cell to suck up other cells and plant particles but cannot consume meat chunks or dead cells.

Creature Stage[]

In the Creature Stage, the Proboscis functions like any other mouth part. It gives level 1 bite and sing abilities to the creature. The Proboscis is only available in the Early Creature Creator, while it can be changed and moved on the creature like any other mouth, it cannot be replaced in the normal Creature Creator if it is removed unless the change is undone.

Maxis-made creations with Proboscis[]




Note: These parts are not available in Spore in general and cannot be used in-game besides accessing via unreleased editor.


  • Through Modifications, a player can access hidden/unused morph handles for this part. These handles can greatly warp the appearance of the Proboscis by making it wide in some places, and thin in others.
  • The three additional variants of Proboscis can be accessed via the Hidden Cell Editor, or via Modifications, with each variant having a progressively thicker, shorter shaft.
