* BatOutOfHell: There's a newly formed Pacific archipelago inhabited by various strange species of flightless bats. Probably the least scientifically plausible of the creatures presented (there could be flightless bats, but it'd be unlikely they'd produce forms like the nightstalker). That said, [[{{Homage}} at least they inspired]] ''Series/{{Primeval}}''[='=]s "Future Predator" and Subulba from ''Star Wars Episode One: Film/ThePhantomMenace''.
