Zombie Phylogeny

A phylogenetic tree is a visual representation of descent or ancestry.  Phylogenies help us better understand evolution and speciation.  There are a number of different ways to draw a phyolgeny, and I've here drawn up a proposed tree for movie zombies.

The tree reads from the bottom up, from the first ancestral undead to the most recent type of zombie (origin unknown).  I've also included the mummy and two varieties of vampires, because these undead are similarly descended from the ancestral undead.

I'm someone who has lived a life seemingly in the background, I must say this final indignity I have suffered almost too much to endure. You see, I have been sickly and weak since the day I was born and doomed to go through my life weakling. I seemed to have always suffered from one illness or another and could never play with the other children as I so desperately wanted to. Mother always made such a big fuss over me, also, making the situation worse as the other boys teased me mercilessly after they saw it. I was browsing  the internet searching on how I could be transformed into a powerful person when I came across the email of a man named Lord Mark. who was a VAMPIRE so I told him that I has always dreamed of becoming a  VAMPIRES, All i did was just to follow the procedure that i was been told, and i bet you that procedure I took change my entire life to something i ever desire, freedom, sickness free, pains free, fame, influence, connections and even more that i can. Thanks to Lord Mark. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the vampires creed today via email:
