Carnivores

Font Size Increase Font Size Decrease Print Page Send to Friend Add to Favorites

Carnivores meaning 'meat eater' is an organism that derives its energy and nutrient requirements from a diet consisting mainly or exclusively of animal tissue, whether through predation or savaging. Animals that depend solely on animal flesh for their nutrient requirements are considered obligate carnivores while those that also consume non-animal food are considered facultative carnivores. A carnivore at the top of the food chain is an apex predator.
