I am sure that the added mass of the meal stays with the morph.
I know this because I have a very good view of it from where I am sitting.

I agree, id say whatever you had eaten in morph will remain with the animal until the next time you morph it. Human stomach might not be able to digest some of the food other animals eat and it might be poisonous to humans

What about the taste factor? What if, after eating a rat, then one morphs back. Would the rat taste be there? Yucks.

I see what you did there.

Bloody hell, another Aussie. What's up, mate?

I think Jake and some others do comment on still being able to taste spider/rat/whatever after they've morphed back. :(


As for morphing with food, it would have to either disappear completely (like morphs and their attached things do since its only the original body that goes into Z-space) or it'd stay there since it wasn't registered as part of the transformed mass. If it's the second possibility, the person-eating snake would have trouble.

But in #25, I'm certain that they all eat a baby seal as wolves and that keeps them full for a while. Maybe that's because they demorphed pretty soon and the stuff was digested and absorbed while they were demorphed.

This is pretty much the same issue as that hair dye one. What happens to non-cellular materials when you morph? Food, morphing outfits, blood, etc. I don't know. KAA isn't too clear or consistent about it.

I assume it would go into z- space. It's the only way the morph would work- although when they morph into an animal it should be HUNGRY!

Well they sure do experience instincts of hunger, with almost every morph they ever do. But, at the same time, the hair and saliva and non-DNA things are as much separate from the body as food is. If they try to morph the creature by picturing it with a suitable amount of hair, at an appropriate age and not particularly hungry then they should end up with the hair, age and lack of hunger that they envisaged. Saying that, an estreen like Cassie should be able to morph into different versions of the same animal/DNA pattern and would probably have realised this at some stage. Then again, it doesn't make a great deal of sense anyway so who knows?

I'm sure the tasting a morphs last meal is all in there head.
Like if I were to say, 'imagine what a cow pie tasts like' you might want to blow chunks, not cuz you tasted one, but cuz in your mind you did.

Quite true, and its not like you could taste a tiny spider once it's already deep into your digestive system.

Hmm, reminds me of 'There was an old lady who swallowed a fly/spider/whatever' :D I think Jake said once that he remembered eating a large bug in Mosquito morph and the taste stayed with him :P

* I just checked. It was Dragonfly. I haven't read Animorphs for a long time. My bad.

Or was it Green Anole morph, or maybe dragonfly? I don't think they ate anything as mosquitos in #18.
