Default Re: giant monster biology

The blood thing: Think of the blood like a car. In a single-celled organism, all the sugars and vitamins and things don't have far to travel, so they can 'walk' the short distance. In larger animals, it's too far to walk, so they take the car.

Actually, that's probably an awful metaphor. Meh.
