Did anyone else notice this? (Protomorph vs Xenomorph)

I was wondering; why was the xenomorph that got loose on the ship smaller than the "protomorph" earlier in the film seeing as they both came out of the same eggs? 

Would this mean that David had created different forms of eggs/facehuggers (even tho they looked the same)?

Or could it have something to do with the last facehugger not getting a proper incubating on the victim as it never got to attach properly to (i dont remember his name) face?


Anyway i loved the look of the protomorph!

It wasnt just the size either, they looked quite different too.

I don't think it was the final form of the xenomorph, I mean David was able to create this 'xenomorph' with the black goo, maybe there are different form, even if David said that : 'it's the perfect one', I mean if it's perfect, it could probably evolve to become the xenomorph that we all knew in 'Alien The movie' ;)

Yes i agree on that but i was talking about why they were different (especially in size) since they came from the same eggs.

Engineers, Predators and man itself grow to various heights and weights.  That is my reasoning.
