Science questions 1. Animal feeding habits Hints: Carnivore: A carnivore is an animal that gets food from killing and eating other animals. Omnivore: An omnivore is a kind of animal that eats both animals and plants. Herbivore: An herbivore is an animal that gets its energy from eating only plants. Insectivore: An insectivore eats mainly small insects. Information: Carnivore: Carnivores generally eat herbivores, but can eat omnivores, and occasionally other carnivores. They are important to any ecosystem because they keep other species from getting overpopulated. Omnivore: Some omnivores will hunt and eat their food, like carnivores, eating herbivores and other omnivores. Some others will eat dead matter as well. Many will eat eggs from other animals. Herbivore: Many herbivores have special digestive systems that let them digest all kinds of plants, including grasses. Herbivores need a lot of energy to stay alive. Many of them, like cows and sheep, eat all day long. Insectivore: Insectivores vocalize by hisses and snarls or with a range of other sounds, including ultrasonics; some use specialized spines to produce sounds. 2.
