Hi again, Ewan.

Thanks so much for your patience. This was difficult to find, but I think the creature you are referring to is called a 'Trilobite'. Here is more info on the various creatures in Prometheus: CLICK

It seems the Trilobite is the alien embryo that Shaw removes from her infected body and leaves for dead, but at the end, it has grown to an enormous, adult sized tentacled alien creature.

Warmest regards,

Hi again, Ewan.

I'm glad your back is healing well and you might go back to work on Monday. I know your job requires physical activity, so I hope you don't overdo it! : )

First, the alien would shoot a tentacle down the throat of its prey to kill it/paralyze it, then it would start feeing at the throat. It would work it's way down the body, tearing pieces of flesh randomly from the guy and wouldn't necessarily consume the whole guy, while it moved onto other prey.

Warmest regards,
Cher

Hi again, Ewan.

I found more info about this........the tentacled alien would wrap itself around the guy and then enter through his mouth, with the intention of not killing him, but impregnating him. That's how more aliens were propagated.

wow interesting , If while it had it`s tenticle down the guys throat it needed ,some seed to fertilise it`s eggs How would it go about getting ,that fruy in 1ST picture.


 

Expert:  Cher replied 3 years ago.
Hi Ewan,

Great question! It doesn't say in the movie how it goes about doing this, but I would guess
that the alien's tentacle would get into the guys scrotum and remove the seed it needed to fertilize its eggs.

Warmest regards,
Cher
