I’ve noticed that the small zombie children aren’t affected by the sun (which is to say that unlike the adults, they don’t burst into flames as soon as they’re in the light).
(There’s a sentence I never thought I’d write in a mining log.)
I’m not sure why they’re unaffected by the sun. I’ve noticed though that they’re also really thick-skinned (and I don’t mean insults). They’re almost as tough to kill as an adult and my sword slices the adults open just fine.
I supposed when you’re a creature from a planet where everything grows in like four days you store a lot of fat under your skin for your growth spurts.
Not sure that explains the fire thing.
