• Herbivores are animals that only eat plants. They are herbivorous animals. Herbivores (such as deer, elephants, horses) have teeth that are adapted to grind vegetable tissue. Many animals that eat fruit and leaves sometimes eat other parts of plants, for example roots and seeds.


  • Animals that eat only plants are called herbivores. Deer, grasshoppers, and rabbits are all herbivores. There are lots of different plants and lots of different herbivores. Some herbivores eat only part of a plant.

    Subsequently, question is, are most animals carnivores or herbivores? The three diets of animals include creatures that eat only plants, those that eat only meat, and animals that eat both plants and meat. Animals that eat plants exclusively are herbivores, and animals that eat only meat are carnivores. When animals eat both plants and meat, they are called omnivores.

    Why are some animals herbivores?

    Herbivores form an important link in the food chain because they consume plants in order to digest the carbohydrates photosynthetically produced by a plant. Carnivores in turn consume herbivores for the same reason, while omnivores can obtain their nutrients from either plants or animals.
