Well that's up for spectulation. Aliens don't seem to show any sign that they've aged apart from growing in size. As for predaliens, its just the same. Maybe they take the predator's life span or maybe they don't. There hasn't been any detail to the alien's life span apart from the eggs. But the eggs don't live very long either. In the first alien movie, I believe that in the jockey ship, where they kept the alien eggs there were other eggs along side the one's in the force field. The force field may have provided a way for the eggs to continue living because (and others may disagree) the other caches had alien eggs but those were fossilized. This shows that eggs do have a long life cycle, but they need a way to provide sustenace. The hive resin provides that. Without it the eggs days are numbered.

Anyone else want to contribute to the idea?

The original intent was that they only lived for a few days max, but that obviously went out the window with Aliens. There's really nothing to indicate how long they live in any of the movies (that I know of).

Hmm, interesting. But like I said its probably the resin that furthers their life span. Otherwise the Queen would just lay eggs and the workers will just put them in random places. In all alien movies the eggs were in a room with resin covering the floor. The resin, I think, provides sustenance to the eggs.

so the risen might be giving the egg energy to live?

Yes but this only applies to the eggs. As to the adult Xenos, its more difficult to tell. I don't know if anyone here knows a Xeno's life span. In the movies a newly born Xeno's life span is only as long as it role in the movie. Many of the new borns are killed in the movie so there really isn't a way to tell how long one of them would have lived. Maybe its like I said before. Maybe they take the life span of their host (excluding the Queen) and some how alter it to their own benefits.

I've always been sure that the hive is an organism that can feed on the walls it grew on... because it has so many gut-like tubes, that really don't look like resin and also, the queen's abdomen thingy, the part that lays the eggs, is clearly not a part of her body, but onlt grown around her. And so i belive the eggs are connected to te hive and are fed by it, which is why they can stay alive for so long.

Here we go again. Someone please read the rules.

Anyway, that is the true life span of an alien. No one really knows how long one will live. There's always something out there that wants to kill and it so happens that killer is targeting aliens.

the xeno's don't nessaceraly have a life span but a drone bee lives for about 4 weeks so multiply by 6 because that is how big they are so around 2 years if they don't get killed
i pay lifes taxes in blood

What...? Aliens are not 6 times bigger than a bee. Plus, 6 times 4 weeks is 6 months, which is not 2 years...
