Xenogenesis Tips

This article offers some ideas for creating alien life forms.  There are many good points to consider.  

I put it like this ...

1) Life is much more creative than most humans realize.  It can and will make use of almost anything eventually.  Do not limit yourself.

2) Life does nothing without a reason.  You will do better to design an environment and then imagine what might live there, than to make up a creature from scratch and try to figure out where it lives.  So whatever your aliens look like, make sure there's justification for that.  But don't get stuck on what things look like or work like here on Earth, because there are many other options.
