Do you think its possible they would have some sort of...'organ' to have a quick feed on the run? like some sort of biological needle?

Not the book versoins. They use pippets. They are more about science that physicality. The Parramount 05 ones, don't seem to feed on the blood themselves but use it as food for the red weed.

Ogilvey, can only assume things because he can't see what becomes of the blood. But remember the bodies are drained from outside the machines, and a left. so the bones and the like would be left on the ground.

No, but I did see such results in movies, so I can tell somehow how it might look like. Having your blood drained is probably not as worse than having a giant spider injecting its digestive juices in you... You get dissolved from the inside out when that happens. Such matter is explained in Eight Legged Freaks.

No, in ELF the male spiders wrapped some humans in cocoons alive to present them for the female, so she can feast on them later. :alien:

Here is something I found on the internet:

Martian Feeding Patterns

"And this was the sum of the Martian organs. Strange as it may seem to a human being, all the complex apparatus of digestion, which makes up the bulk of our bodies, did not exist in the Martians. They were heads--merely heads. Entrails they had none. They did not eat, much less digest. Instead, they took the fresh, living blood of other creatures, and INJECTED it into their own veins."

The physiology of Martians is quite unlike our own, their cerebral functions having been greatly advanced seemingly at the expense of the locomotive, olfactory and digestive systems among others.

The injection of blood involved in Martian feeding is accomplished by means of retractable pipette of bone, similar in appearance to the horn of the narwhal, but thinner, almost needle-like, measuring approximately three feet in length, normally retracted and concealed in the creature’s throat. This hollow instrument is able to telescope out, and is plunged into the neck of the Martian’s unfortunate victim, from which the living blood is pumped directly into the Martian’s veins by means of a specialised chamber of the heart. A valve within that chamber ensures that the blood can only flow into the Martian’s body. The pipette is also joined to the respiratory system, which, by means of a strong exhalation on the part of the Martian, cleans out the tube in a spray of blood after the Martian has finished feeding and prevents it from becoming blocked by the clotted blood of its victims. It is this exhalation through the feeding-tube that produces the Martians’ distinctive call. Other than this they appear to have no vocal apparatus.

So, what do you think? :roll:

A lot of that I recognise from Wells' novel but the description of the Narwhal like horn is new to me, Where did you find it? :?
