I live in the Rockies, a very HARD place to access if you don't use roads.
So this got me thinking - if you had Zeds shambing around coming from let's say, Vegas to the Western slope (approx 750 miles across desert and then high mountain country), there is going to be a point where they start running out of humans to munch on.
Slow moving Zeds are not going to be catching snakes and rabbits along the way. A runner might snag something, but it is going to be few and far in between.
So, what happens like 500 miles out into the desert? Do they start decomposing fast under the desert sun and 100+ temperatures? Can they sustain themselves for long periods of time from feeding to feeding?
Would they try catching bugs to eat? Are they that fast? Would they start eating each other?
I'd like to hear ideas, theories, your thoughts.
Saying zombies do not need to eat is just plain dumb. See, to move you need energy, electrolytes and all kinds of stuff. Mostly, you get these from food. In order for zombies to be able to walk or do anything they need energy and thus need to feed.
Though if you rly look at it rationally, they also need oxygen/to breathe and they need bloodflow to get the energy to their skeleton muscles. Seeing as they have no heartbeat this is impossible, so they can't rly ever exist which is kind of a bummer and a relief at the same time...
