Xenomorph Myths

peashooter85:

Thinking about getting a xenomorph for a pet but hesitant because of certain myths perpetuated by Hollywood filmakers? Well as a caretaker for a pet xenomorph I’m here to dispel those myths and set the record straight.

Myth #1: Xenomorphs are aggressive and violent

An old myth that unfortunately has become all too common. In truth aggressive xenomorphs are only violent as a result of abusive or violent owners.  When properly raised and cared for xenomorphs can be loyal, kind, adorable, and affectionate pets. While movies give them a bad rap, in reality most xenomorphs just want a hug.

Myth # 2: Xenomorphs have metal dissolving acid for blood 

I mean, come on! This is so ridiculous! As a xenomorph owner and a person in the medical profession who works with blood gasses, this one truly baffles me! IF this myth was true, how would a xenomorph maintain blood chemistry balance? What about nutrient and gas exchange? How could a xenomorph’s body tissues and internal organs be unaffected by an acidic compound that melts metal. Sheesh!

Myth #3: Xenomorphs don’t get along well with other pets.

Certainly not true. If raised properly a xenomorph will become a loving part of the family with all other pets.  Xenomorphs are especially known for having an affinity for kitties.

Myth 4: Xenomorphs drool everywhere

Unfortunately there is some truth to this myth. Xenomorphs are known for being bad droolers. I mean, look at my xenomorph named Twizzler when I first got him.

However this problem can be mitigated with proper training. Never punish your xenomorph for drooling, rather offer rewards proper spittle management such as treats. I also suggest having a lot of carpet and upholstry cleaner handy.
