I think it’ll be one of those things we do not know about until after they have been fighting in a war and fuzzy photos start coming out from the opposition. Can’t tip our hand and it’s better to ask forgoveness.
That thing makes it look like it's unhinging it's jaw to eat the orb. Reminds me of my great-grandfather, a lifelong farmer, telling us the story of a chicken snake that ate an egg (whole of course), crawled through a gap in two barn slats between chicken coops, and got stuck b/c the egg didn't fit. He then got hungry and ate another egg, thus having a huge bulging egg on both sides of the slats. You can imagine how that worked out. D'oh!
