Lice was the name given to a species of primitive parasitic insects native to Fiorina "Fury" 161.[1]

Characteristics[]

The lice on Fiorina 161 fed voraciously on the keratin in hair, but curiously not fingernails, and, as a result, all human inhabitants of the planet were forced to continually shave their heads and bodies.[1]

Behind the Scenes[]

The lice in Alien3 were portrayed by cricket nymphs.[2] The tiny creatures got everywhere, including inside the Xenomorph suit worn by Tom Woodruff, Jr., causing the effects artist much discomfort during filming. The nymphs also infested the ox puppet used to portray Babe in the abattoir scenes from the extended Special Edition, and when Amalgamated Dynamics, Inc. took the puppet out of storage several weeks after filming, they found the creatures were still alive and had since grown to full size.[2]
