Consumers – STP U.o.I.

A consumer is anything that eats to get energy and nutrients  (Herbivores, Carnivores, Insectivores, or Omnivores)

Animals are called consumers. This is because they cannot make their own food, so they need to consume (eat) plants and/or animals.

(see photos below)

There are 3 types of consumers: –

  1. Herbivores – Only eat plants (producers)
  2. Carnivores – Only eat animals (consumers)
  3. Omnivores – Eat both plants and animals

Which do you think would survive if there was a food shortage? Why do you think that?
