Ok...they've stated in the show that the Wraith are the products of the Iratis Bug feeding on human hosts but...in the first ep of Atlantis the hologram says that the Ancients found them already on the planet.......If thats not true and they did come from the Iratis Bug feeding on the Ancients how did they evolve so quickly?

All I can say is that the Ancients were already on an evolutionary path and that somehow sped up the evolution of the Iratus bug. Besides, who knows when they first encountered the Iratus bug?:sheppard:

it said in the Gift i think, that they ancients accedently put humans and the iratus bug on the same planet, over years it made the wraith what they are today. When they returned to the planet, the wraith had taken up residence there. Im not really sure if im exactly right, i might have to watch The gift again.

I supposes thats possible...Insect evolution is messured in generations not in years to the Writh in theory could have evolved quickly

First the Ancients took off from the Tau'ri (Earth) to avoid being killed by a Plague that was very reminiscent of the Ori Plague. They went to Pegasus. They seeded the Galaxy to create humans (I guess they were lonely). Some of these humans found themselves on a planet that was inhabited by a very simple lifeform known as the Iratis bug. This bug fed off of the humans that had been seeded on that planet. Somehow over time (remember, they left Earth a jillion years ago) the Iratis bug not only sucked the life out of the humans, but it evolved. Whether the BUG evolved into the Wraith, or the humans slowly evolved into the Wraith due to the bug I think is uncertain, but whatever the case - that's how the Wraith first started appearing.

I supposed their bug (locust) like nature allowed them to multiply extremely fast, and once they got their hands on Ancient technology they were able to learn how to use it and develop their own Wraith-tech.

The Wraith are bad, very bad. They want to eat you. Don't play in the forest after dark either, that is when they like to get you.

Actually, it's more like sucking the life out of you. Eating implies actually cutting up and devouring stuff via oral consumption (which is just gross :eek:.). They call it feeding, not eating. ;)

At least when you eat something, you don't leave a dried up husk just laying behind. That "sucking life" thing just creeps me way the heck out.

I would rather be eaten. Killed quick and propaired properly. Getting the life sucked out of me would just suck. I wonder if they would let me look in the mirrow so I could see myself turn old.

Only bad in OUR opinion, sure their angels in their own thoughts.

If they were angles, they wouldn't enjoy torture and killing sentient beigns and try to find a way to feed on other nonesenteints.
We eat None Sentient biengs thus its O.K. Imagen Asgard for lunch with a Guaold on the side, that is plane worng!
Or Unas omlet with Wriath Soup!
How about Jaffa Soup with a tad bit of Foothold Alien??
Or Re'tu surprise!

Get my point. They are bad.
