if an animal had a diet of only candy, what would that be?
it wouldn't be a carnivore or an herbivore or even an omnivore really, so what would that even be? and i know its impossible for an animal to have a candy-only diet, i was just wondering hypothetically.

Some monkeys eat mostly sugary tree sap and a few bugs. They are called gummivores.

Most people think that hummingbirds only need sugar water. They are wrong. They drink nectar but they also catch insects for a balanced diet. OTOH, honey bee workers do live on a diet of almost exclusively honey, which is sugar water. Worker bees only live 30 days during the summer months however. Animals need protein to repair muscles, and they need nucleic acids to replace dead cells so their short life may be due to the lack of proteins and nucleic acids. As the body breaks down, damaged parts are not replaced. Adult male mosquitoes do not drink blood, as females need the protein to lay eggs, so presumably male mosquitoes only drink nectar for their entire adult lives as well.

Candy has sugar and many times fat. So I would say omnivore.
