The Flood has to have DNA. People have compared the Flood to bacteria, virus, and fungi. All three happen to have DNA, because DNA is required for life. I like to believe that this is just the Forerunners showing us a part of the Flood DNA sequence. I don't know enough about molecular genetics to say that this IS said Chinese Alligator, but I do know that most DNA is similar, because lots of codes that say 'this thing has an arm here' is the same between species.

I guess what I'm saying is that I agree with you in that this is a storytelling bit, but it's more from the angle that this is a portion of the Flood's DNA, saved by the Forerunners.

It's ~99.81 Chinese Alligator, that's more than Ivory soap pure.

Anyway, I doubt they'd expect more than what we've got. Unless there's something about Chinese alligators, or we find a gator somewhere with an IP tattooed on it, this seems like the last stop on this train.

But yeah, the entire DNA thing is a bit off. There was a nice bit in ArsTechnica about a NASA panel discsussing our "human bias" in the search for life, which I think the Castaway Theory alluded to.

The flood aren't necessarily a virus, they could be a parasite.

in halo first strike dr. halsey called the flood a meta organism- idk if that helps

Just like how scientists tag certain organisms with DNA tags that produce noticable proteins I think that the Forerunners tagged the Chinese Alligator along with other noteworthy organisms with these certain DNA codes to differentiate them from other non special organisms.

i recall reading in either one of the halo novels or something that the flood was silicon (no e on the end, my mistake the first time) based, not carbon, if that helps at all...course, i could be wrong and just imagined that, but w/e
