I've never really taken the time to comment before, despite quite thoroughly browsing your work, but I love your non-humanoid take on alien life.  It's such a shame that humanoid, bipedal lifeforms are the easiest to budget for in modern scifi, if only because it's actually only one of a myriad of shapes intelligent life could possibly take.

 Pure awesome sauce! Something I am very curious about is how would first contact with humans go (assuming they are within a reasonable distance), to simplify it further, what if I was exploring the planet at the same time and happened upon and approached this lone dude just outside his ship?

Ah, that would depend on the individuals involved ;)

 Well, if I was standing a good distance away from one of them how would I approach them or would I let them approach me? Sorry for the strange questions, I just find this alien species so fascinating.

Definitely let them approach you, as birrin front up to any perceived threat.
