    A ''HERBIVORE'' eats only stuff like vegetables and anything like leaves. A ''CARNIVORE'' eats only meat. And an ''OMNIVORE EATS'' both. A ''CARNIVORE'' is an animal that strictly eats other animals. A herbivore only eats plants. an omnivore eats both animals and plants.

    1. A herbivore is an animal that gets its energy from eating plants, and only plants.

    2. A carnivore is an animal that gets food from killing and eating other animals.

    Carnivores generally eat herbivores, but can eat omnivores, and occasionally other carnivores. Animals that eat other animals, like carnivores and omnivores are important to any ecosystem, because they keep other species from getting overpopulated.

    3. Omnivores can also eat parts of plants, but generally only the fruits and vegetables produced by fruit-bearing plants. Many herbivores have special digestive systems that let them digest all kinds of plants, including grasses.

    Is this a test, or do you really want to know?

    Herbivores are those animals that feed principally on vegetable matter, like leaves, fruit, roots, tubers, flower nectar, etc.

    Carnivores are those animals that feed principally on the meat of other animals, like the muscles, bones, or internal organs.

    Omnivores are those animals that feed on most anything, including vegetation and meat, which includes all kinds of plants and fruits, and any animal or insect they can find and catch.
