It looks like a threat because it is displaying threatening charactiristics that any animal exhibit when feeling threatened or going to attack. Making its self as tall and wide as possible. It hisses as well does it not? Now any normal person can instinctualy know this is aggressive behaviour so how the fuck does a biologist specailising in animal life not pick up on it. fucking stupid.
With regards to the snake creature, as viewers of the film we know it to be a threat because we've seen Alien. John Hurt did exactly the same thing and we know how that ended. The crew of this film haven't seen Alien, so they just see a creature and have no idea if it is hostile or not one way or the other. A scientist would be curious about this creature, especially with it being the first instance of alien life anyone has ever encountered. To not investigate at all would be the least scientific approach as you're relying on faith that the creature is hostile. The hissing and stance of the creature is to imply it is hostile, but the scientist could decide it is not a threat because it a) behaviour on Earth is no indication that this creature has evolved to display familiar hostile characteristics and b) it didn't even have a mouth.
Also the geologist whos sole putpose is to map the place and find his way about and he is the one who gets lost. I mean how hard would it have been for the other one to get lost and him to follow him to try prevent them getting lost, but it happening anyway, but no with him leading the way concentrating on finding the way out, he gets lost. FUcking stupid
