Because cannibalism is taboo, even for zombies.

Its in the zombie bro code.

Zombies know not to eat each other because they only eat living human flesh. Once infected and full zombification has taken place, the zombie is no longer alive, so its flesh is not palatable to other zombies.

If all the humans were eaten or infected the zombies would not turn on each other. they would roam around looking for more live humans. As they are dead, their flesh would rot due to decomposition and weathering. The zombies would break down and eventually there would be none left.

@devexityspace: Well if humans are out of food and stranded, we involve ourselves in cannibalism. Why don't zombies support cannibalism? Are we to say that zombies have more pride in their... uhmmm... race.... than people?

Besides, if they're not eating for nutrition (since their bodies are already rotting anyways) is there a point for them needing human flesh? Why not the flesh of animals? And are there zombie animals?

@holymythos: there are of course zombie animals (I would assume Mammals only; but reptiles/amphibians could end up becoming zombies as well).

Resident Evil shows infected dogs/ravens; so expect to see them in the upcoming zombie apocalypse...

As for why zombies don't eat each other; their flesh is rotting away; it can't taste very good...

same reason they don't eat Clowns - they taste funny.

I just keep giggling at the picture of a circle of zombies chasing [lurching after] each other for days [nights?] at a time, trying to get a bite to eat.

Well zombies are no longer warm-blooded right? I know I like my food hot, perhaps zombies are the same.

vote-for3vote-against

Because they have no braaains!

Because they have the same smell

Because they taste funny?

because they can't stand the smell of themselves either.

Because zombies eat brains. To become a zombie, you first must be attacked by a zombie. Presumably, if you have been attacked, they ate your brains. So zombies don't eat other zombies because zombies don't have enough brains.
