Hive Webbing is the name given to the substance used by Xenomorphs to construct their Hives. The material is excreted from the creature's jaws.[1]

Composition and PurposeEdit

Webbing is excreted (often liberally) from the jaws of Xenomorphs as a clear, saliva-like fluid. Much like the silk spun by spiders, it is a proteinaceous substance that hardens on drying.[1] In its hardened state, it adopts a darker, translucent color, often varying shades of black, brown and/or green. Once hardened, webbing is relatively elastic whilst still retaining exceptional tensile strength.[1]

It is primarily used in the construction of a Hive.
