Carnivores are those who would need to eat meat so that they can survive. Some people say that carnivore stands for “meat-eater,” but it should be remembered that not all carnivores are the same. There are some carnivores that would need to eat mostly meat in order to get the type of nutrients that they need.

Some would scavenge meat that has already been dead for quite some time.

Carnivores are organisms that derive the nutrient and energy they need for survival from consuming a diet that is mainly or highly animal base. The term “carnivore” stands for “meat-eaters”. It will amaze you know that not only animals are carnivores. Plants can be carnivorous as well. Examples of carnivorous plants are Venus flytrap and Pinguicula. These plants get most of their nutrients by Wrapping and consuming animals or protozoans.

Carnivores have specialized dentition to help with gripping and tearing their prey. They also have claws and paws climbing, gripping, digging, and slicing, capturing, and tearing their prey.
