Follow TV Tropes
As it stands, I don't think that this does a good job conveying the trope, since it relies on Fridge Logic-y stuff that the caption doesn't call attention to:
While Babylon 5 generally tries to avert this (ex: the Drafa Plague doesn't affect humans), Humans and Minbari are the notable exception; a good image might be a series of 3 frames:
For the caption, I was thinking a Clickbait Gag about how easy it is. Something along the lines of:

I think the current could work with a different caption.
The current isn't even an example. Giant isopods are weird-looking, but they aren't aliens, nor are they fictional, ruling out the Speculative Fiction aspect.
Edit: Also, this image seems to have been cropped from this image macro (the parts covered by text in the Image Macro are missing from the page image), so that might be relevant as well.

Alright, here's a more concrete example of what I had in mind, taken from the B5 fan-made wiki:
On the other hand, I'd prefer an image that was a bit less tall. This might not be the final image.
I don't get what's going on on that pic, to be honest.
The examples are also located on their own respective subpages (three, actually), so we probably should leave the main page imageless and find a pic for each of the specific example subpages.
Voting no pic on this & lock the thread.
Probably TRS the trope as well, since there are three distinct example variants. Is it enough to warrant the creation of a subtrope?

I can't follow that suggestion either.
Alright, fair enough. It was worth a shot. (I think some of the forms that it lists don't have subtropes, though.)
Looks like I'm late, but here◊ is the full old image without the text. I guess it's not an example anyway since giant isopods aren't aliens or fictional. At first I thought they were trying to eat the bag itself, which is more Extreme Omnivore than this trope.

I get what's going on in the B5 suggestion, but it probably will be too subtle for most that aren't familiar with the show.
I can live with that.
No idea what it should represent.
I don't understand what that's depicting.
I can grab the rest of the image, which is plenty specific.
Seems a bit wordy, though.
Yeah, no idea what's going on in 15 either.
And there's no way 19 would ever work as a page image. There's way too much text, and it's barely legible, anyway.
Still voting no pic & TRS.
^ I would support that.
I think I get what 15 is going for, but it seems like it's illustrating something other than this and 19 is nowhere near legible enough for a page pic.
Clock is set.
Couldn't any image of an alien eating human food work?
