Herbivores Animals

Herbivores Animals

All living things need some kind of food to stay alive.
Food gives them energy and helps them to grow and to stay healthy.
Green plants can make their own food. Some animals eat plants, and some animals eat other animals. Food energy passes from plants to animals in a long chain.
This is called a food chain.

The animals that eat plants, such as sheep or rabbits, are called herbivores. 
Herbivores are eaten in turn by animals that eat meat, such as foxes, which eat rabbits.
Meat-eaters are called carnivores.
