Wanamingos are strange mutant animals which are often called "aliens" due to their similarity to the xenomorph from the Alien movies. Nonetheless, they are of terran origin. Word is they were designed as FEV-tailored weapons for waging war on other countries... and they got loose. They do live a long time, but they are dying out at the time of Fallout 2. They hatch from eggs laid by the queen, which is larger than the other wanamingos and grey in color.
The only known queen lives in the Wanamingo Mine in Redding, owned by Ascorti. All wanamingos living in that mine are killed by the Chosen One in 2242. Some others can be found in the desert, and in the San Francisco tanker.
