    If Iratus hybrids can only feed on the animal they are a hybrid with maybe the hybrids ate all the available food and then died of starvation.

    It doesn't make sense to me that Wraith can only feed on humans. It's like saying that spiders can only feed on spiders or lions can only eat lions.

    Exactly! It would really make much more sense if they had a variety of food. On the other hand, there are species on earth who specialize on only one food course, like pandas for example. (Which is quite dumb, evolution-wise, IMO.) You're right, of course, it's complete nonsense that one species can only survive by being kind of cannibalistic.

    I think, they just have not put that much thought into that, becaise the Wraith are supposed to be the bad ones, the less you know about them actually the easier it is to dislike them for what you know.

    It would be nice to have those answers still

    But another question is why do they actually lose the ability to eat like humans, I mean it would be much more wise to have both options in times of the one or the other being rare. But that I guess would belong to another thread

    If, on the other hand, Ancients deliberately create the Wraith it would explain why they have to be kind of cannibalistic. The Ancients invented useless weapons like the exploding tumour machine so Wraith were the result of another experiment gone wrong.

    That is a good point, tthough I prefere Wraith as a result of a failed experiment much more than a machine that creates exploding tumors. Leaves you wondring what they actually thought as they created that

    I think you answered your question about eating human foods in your first sentence.

    Could be so, but it is very unsatisfying..so many things left unexplained and unexplored

    Exactly so! The Ancients did some terribly stupid things along the way. They are more similar to humans than they would like to admit, apparently.

    And so many missed chances for even greater storylines. But that's the problem with such a specialised fandom: The TV episodes are far too short to delve more deeply into the culture of an alien species and TPTB rather fill the limited time with action and focus on the main protagonists. Of course we can't blame them, they've still done an excellent job with entertaining us, even for years after the show ended.

    There should be a new Stargate series where the Wraith are the main protagonists, then we could see such questions solved, like the one this thread is about and others, would be nice I think

    Star Trek managed to delve into alien cultures but then, it wasn't a show where the main characters had to run around with guns every week.
