Join us for a discussion of the science behind complex Alien life forms. What biology inspired depictions of hominoid aliens, such as Predator and the Xenomorphs? Are 2-legs a biologically reliable anatomy for complex alien life forms? Of the various insectivoid aliens, which of those have real life biologic counterparts? How about non-carbon based life forms or even 6 (or 7 or 8) legged body plans? Join comparative anatomist, Jandy Hanna, to discuss these possibilities and more.
