Predator Victims

The skinned victims of a Yautja.

Flaying, known colloquially as skinning, is the removal of skin from the body. Flaying is a process often chosen by a Yautja when turning its prey into a trophy. It consists of removing most, if not all, of the skin from the victim's body; this process can be carried out either after death or whilst the prey is still alive. Skinned victims are usually those who were considered easy prey by a Predator. Skinned bodies are routinely hung by the ankles from a height and left behind to intimidate other potential victims. Predaliens have also sometimes been seen to replicate this behavior.[1]
