Re: The Walking Dead Season 2 Discussion *Spoilers*

Body temperature isn't what makes them swell up like meat balloons. It's the gases given off by putrefaction.

If you want a justification, just say that whatever virus/nanite/magic has animated the zombies: it also feeds on or kills the bacteria that contribute to the rotting process. The decay isn't halted, just slowed way down.
