Image following. One of the descriptions from the various sources over the past few months mentioned xenos that were "no bigger than rats". I dismissed that as just someone who didn't understand what they were seeing. But see the screenshot below.. maybe I am looking too hard.. If this is in David's lab then maybe that report was legit? Looks like Xeno seahorses to me.

That's weird,maybe that could explain Paradise's lack of animal life.

Those little buggers could be some of the different bursters we were told about too?


FacehuggerMember137 XPMar-08-2017 10:27 PM

Those look like bird skeletons, something like a heron.

Yes, certainly look like bird skeletons.

Wait a minute...if there were xeno-rats, then surely the crew would need...

Hahah apologies guys been waiting for an opportunity to mention my furry hero!

Good find Drake! Never even noticed those little buggers in the background. Could they be a variation of the backburster/throatbursters?

@Lone, I REALLY hope there's a cat in AC for this that reason...the real hero of Alien.

Never heard of the Rats rumor before... only thing related is i was told the Xenos are designed now to move mainly on fours to get around quicker and can move around like Rats and Mice as far as Speed etc

As for those Props, they are what look like Chicken/Turkey or similar Skeletons... i would assume they was used in the creature department to help come up with ideas for the anatomy of maybe some Creature designs.

But it appears this room will be in the movie and its interesting to see how much of it and how many such props make it into the movie and if there are any explanations for why they are there.
