d100 Flesh pits of the space gods pt2: lifeforms

Thank you for d100 suggestions - mounts and doom of kingdom have done well and will do some variants of in future.

Bio-dungeon systems might adapt readily producing new strains or mimicking things it has contacted or developing a strain with resistances or a new environment.

You might want to add magic or psionic abilities too depending on the setting (1in6 if available)

More situations for alien flesh dungeon zone:

Flesh or steel? Who will Win, this vs mecha environment would be a nice campaign
Inside giant snail
Inside huge clam to find a giant pearl
Inside a giant egg
Alien ecology growing from crater
Created by madman or intelligence as future of all life
A species which has assimilated most of the universe
Time travelled from future as run out of room there
Has taken a universe, seek a new one
Remnants of old gods still semi alive in crust of planet
Part of god fell in battle, still alive eons later
Demonic presence takes over skyscraper with investigators inside
Trek to dawn of time, only one organism
Alien wizard threatens to break elder gods seals, kill him in his alien flesh palace or else
In the garden of the chaos goddesses womb
Some change could do a plant or macrobe or fungus based one too
Taken to inside of Azathoth to live by Nyarlathotep as a trick
