Zombies (otherwise known as The Walking Dead, scientific name Homo Coprophagus Somnambulus) are widely understood to be described as a deceased person who has partially “returned to life” due to one of several possible reasons. Some theories discuss the reanimation of the dead as the result of an infection or spread of an epidemic / pandemic virus.
A zombie can be known to moan and sound like it is struggling to breathe, however this action is purely reflexive as zombies do not need to breathe air. Their bodies operate at the most basic level, the digestive systems are unaffected and the brain provides nothing more than basic motor functions. They have no emotion, no personality, and do not sense pain. Only in the rarest of cases some zombies have been known to perform routine activities from their past lives.
Zombies do not get tired, ever. They have only one goal: to kill and consume living creatures and will persist at this regardless of the physical cost. A zombie will continue to hunt the living without the use of its limbs, and even if the head is removed, it will still be a threat until the brain is destroyed. Destroying the brain and burning the corpse is the only way to effectively remove the zombie threat.
The term “zombie” was originally used to describe a mindless voodoo slave, but this has now evolved to include the reanimated cannibals known as “shamblers” that feature in George A. Romero‘s film, Night of the Living Dead. Several of Romero’s films have helped to increase public awareness of zombies up to the turn of the century and in 2003 the publication of Max Brook’s Zombie Survival Guide has helped to propel extensive zombie knowledge into the hands of the average citizen.
