I can't believe I'm arguing about this on a zombie thread. LMAO
Thanks for chiming in. I'm sorry to hear about your daughter's injury.

I didn't read too far back but....

Are they actually eating? Or is it more like they feel the need too kill/make everyone into a zombie. They don't die from lack of "eating" do they? And we know they can survive minus body parts unaffected, so what if one of them had a stomach injury? It would still eat but not "digest"....therefore I claim the writers didn't think this through and have now ruined my perception of zombies. Ok just kidding, my brain is taking this too far lol

I think they do, because remember the one who consumed Lori? His belly was so bloated. And the times we have seen them eating deer, rats, etc... They are chewing and pulling it all apart. But, I see your point... what if their stomach had been destroyed by an injury? Would the consumed flesh just fall out?

Too much to think about.

Re: The Walking Dead

Love that this thread now has a "zombie feces" tag.

Just found this:

The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection from the Living Dead (Amazon) asserts that zombies do not retain the digestive functions of living humans:

(p. 11-12) "Recent evidence has once and for all discounted the theory that human flesh is the fuel for the undead. A zombie's digestive tract is completely dormant. The complex system that processes food, extracts nutrition, and excretes waste does not factor into a zombie's physiology. Autopsies conducted on neutralized undead have shown that their 'food' lies in its original, undigested state at all sections of the tract. This partially chewed, slowly rotting matter will continue to accumulate, as the zombie devours more victims, until it is forced through the anus, or literally bursts through the stomach or intestinal lining. While this more dramatic example of non-digestion is rare, hundreds of eyewitness reports have confirmed undead to have distended bellies. One captured and dissected specimen was found to contain 211 pounds of flesh within its system! Even rarer accounts have confirmed that zombies continue to feed long after their digestive tracts have exploded from within."

Gwoss!!!

I think maybe the feeding thing is more of an aggressive animal-like thing. Not a feeding thing then. Just a primal "nom nom nom" sort of thing. Like how I feel when I see skittles...

Exactly. Skittles to a mama. Flesh to a zombie. All the same.
