makes insects look like little strange aliens.
And now, a team of German scientists have decided to make the connection between insects and aliens legit by naming newly discovered parasitic varieties after Xenomorphs from the sci-fi horror movie Alien.
In the movie Alien, a babycreeps s torso into an explosion of blood and intestines. The surviving movie people realize that their fear is that people make perfect hosts for foreigners to lay their eggs.
A new study, published Tuesday in Nature Communications, shows that in the real world parasitic wasps have used similar bulky tactics for millions of years.
Parasitic varieties make hosts of other insects, like aliens, which lay eggs inside or on other insects.
When the young goats grow, they eat the bodies of the host from within,

Fossil evidence of insect-value parasitoid interactions is considered extremely rare, so ideas about parasite development have been considered antithesis, up to now.
With the help of synchrotron x-rays, the researchers discovered four new parasitic bulls imagine 55 mineralized fossils of 30 million to 40 million years old avalanches.
"This is the first time we definitely have evidence that a developing parasitoid wasp is in its host in the fossil book," Thomas van de Kamp, an entomologist from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany and author of the New York Times, told the New York Times on Tuesday.
The German team, which identified the samples for newly discovered varieties, has officially named two of the species Xenomorphia resurrecta and Xenomorphia handschini.
In the spirituality of foreigners, it is perhaps time to name these spaces from space.
