I've been wondering this ever since trailer two launched.What exactly does no animal life mean for Paradise?On one hand i'd almost say this could support that Paradise has terraformed by the black goo,but I'm not so certain.In the Fire and Stone series,we saw the black goo turn what was a barren moon into...well a paradise(sorta.)It created lifeforms,water,plant life etc.So if it's a similar case with Paradise,then why no animals?Another idea is that David turned them all into test subjects,but that's also hard to believe.That would be a lot of animals.We also have images of what appears to be a planet wide extinction event,complete with charred remains of an unidentified species.Covenant the animals have suffered from this too?One thing we know is life exist everywhere,in the water,in the soil.Paradise also has a lot of greenery to be seen,trees,plants,bushes etc,all of which provides oxygen to the world.I would think animals have to be somewhere.After all,yhey have their part to play in the progress of nature,but where did they go?This world seems to be thriving,is that possible without animal life?What do you guys think?

Nothing the God of biomechanics wouldn't let you in heaven for

"So we have to assume it (Wheat) was native to Paradise, if the Engineers are connected to Paradise and we are connected to the Engineers, then why assume that Plant Life  (or some) could not have been brought to Earth from Paradise."

Yes, BigDave.

If David 8 was able to get his hands on any "egg" shaped Weyland-Yutani Corporation Bio-Replicator pods, then David 8 could produce "40 million seed varieties and plant DNAs." I am also quite sure David 8 could hack these pods for his own interests.

In the ten years in between the events of Prometheus on LV-223 and viewing David 8 on Paradise, David 8 could have harvested human technology from another colony or ship.
