   Okay.....so this has been bugging me for a while. I got hooked on The Walking Dead last year. But I can't stop wondering why no one seems to think about or address this.
    How can these zombie corpses last so long without disintegrating???
    My hubby's friend was over and he's a zombie junkie and I presented him with my dilemma. He laughed because he said it had occurred to him. My hubby laughed at me and said it's just a show. But then I see them doing NatGeo and History Channel shows about real life zombie threats. I think to myself, I say, "Self, you don't really have much to worry about. It is 90 degrees in November where you live. A corpse would not last long in this heat." A week old dead body that can attack you and bite you while its limbs and jaw remain in tact, no problem....hmmmm.

Walkers do rot and starve, but their bodies eat themselves from within if they do not receive sustenance. However, this is at a much slower rate than a living human's since their system runs at a far lower capacity. It's why some walkers look more fresh than others and others look straight ancient and mangled but still operate.

They're essentially trying to slow deterioration.

I can't take zombies no mo.LOL

My friends are obsessed with the idea and some swear the zombie apocalypse is coming soon.

Speaking of hypocritical, I just stumbled on an article discussing the history of zombies on Halloween night. A good read!

I heard the scientist guy in that creepy a$$ town explain it that way too. They deteriorate more slowly and need less to be "alive".
   
 
It doesn't really make much sense to me though, seeing as how they aren't cannibalistic (so far). If everyone is either dead and zombified or alive and pre-zombified, what the heck have they been eating all this time? Are we supposed to believe that there are enough wild animals to sustain that many walkers? They need a better explaination.

They've been starving. Tongue They want food. It's why they migrate.
