Morphing and eating

Post by Nykesutre » Wed Dec 16, 2009 5:25 pm

;) I was just considering this, but the animorph sometimes eat meat and animals after they morph into a predator, the only problem with this is that where does the food go after they morph back to human? Does it stay in Zero-space? or does the food/animal still remain in their bodies? Because I was re-reading The Time of the Dinosaurs (Megamorph 4) and Cassie wolfs down an entire (or part of a) Ticeretops while in Tyrannosaurous morph, that's enough meat to feed at least 100 people. I guess Tobias never had that problem? But still the Animorphs never complain of being hungry after they morph back :shock:

Several possible explanations.

1.) Perhaps the meal does, in fact, go into z-space with the rest of the morph.
2.) Maybe the meal metabolizes quickly and, to an extent, fuels the energy for the morphing process.

I've been wondering that too... what if you are very hungry, then morph into a wolf, hunt a rabbit and eat it, then morph back to human. Would you still be hungry?

i think the food would stay in the body even if they morphed, remember when everybody went inside marco and he morphed they weren't put into z-space they just moved around in his body.. i think the time when cassie was dinosaur was just an inconsistency..

I had forgoten about Marco's morphong with them inside him, that does change things doesn't it.
I still can's forget the meal Rachel and Tobias shaired when Tobias ate the berger, then morphed human to eat the bun and vegs.

I would guess that the food stays in your gut unchanged, unless of course you morph something real tiny like.

I think that it stays with that animal, so if the wolf eats and then you morph out, then the next time you morph into the wolf you will be full.
When you're in battle, you do what you have to do. Honor and courage and all that? Those are the words you say after you've killed all your enemies.

This does pose an interesting question. Say I morphed into a giant snake and ate someone... When I morph back do they go elsewhere or somehow stay in my stomach - which would be way too tiny!

The mass of whatever (or whoever) you ate would be greater then your total mass once you were done morphing, there for the same thing would happen as when the Animorphs turned into blood sucking bugs in #18.

Wait...They didn't turn into lawyars, did they???
