Begin dissecting the alien. the bone structure is similar in shape, but the bones themself are very flexible due to being somewhat hollow. the closest earth comparison would be birds. very light for being 8 foot tall. on interior of bones a silver whitish paste, looks metallic. very similar to silicone. they have two sets of lungs for separate use. something on back of neck is lacking a dotted grid. over the rest of the body is a husk like grid. The skin on the back of the neck ruptures in and a circular bone with notches is within. The bone seemed like it tried to grab at my finger. The gun is biomechanical.
Randy gets a message going, they attack and make a giant crater. we travel south. nuke goes off. wind northeast so no fallout.
