Possibly old, but I noticed something...

Dust Mites look a lot like head crabs. Were head crabs possibly designed to look similar, or was this a coincidence?

I didn't know about that either.

And striders look like mosquitoes.

Even here in mexico, we call them "zancudos". Which Roughly translate to Striders. Cool huh?

Like most artist, I'm sure Valve took inspiration from nature when designing their monsters.
