1.1. Animals and Food

IDevice Icon 1.1. Animals and Food






Animals are living things, so they need to eat food. We classify animals into three groups: herbivores, carnivores and omnivores.

  • Herbivores: Herbivores eat plants. They eat different parts of plants such as leaves, roots and fruit. Herbivores have special teeth to help them cut and chew plants. Deer, cows and rabbits are herbivores.
  • Carnivores: Carnivores eat other animals. They hunt and eat meat. They have sharp teeth and excellent eyesight. Foxes, eagles and lions are carnivores.
  • Omnivores: Omnivores eat plants and other animals. Bears and chimpanzees are omnivores.
