    Animals are basically divided in three categories on the basis of food they eat. These categories are as:-




    Let we discuss each of them in details:-

    1. Herbivores:- Animal that feed of plant and plant products only. These animals only eat plants and their products. Plant product include( fruits , Vegetables etc)

    These animals rank at first level of food chain . You can also called them as “vegetarian”. These animals basically eat healthy food and thus have low toxicity in their body .

    They basically eat grasses , leaves of trees , branches etc.

    Examples of herbivores :- Deer , cow , buffalo , goat , Giraffe etc.

    2. Carnivorous :- Totally opposite to harbivores animals . They eat flesh of other animals only . They rank at second number of food chain. For example :- grass ——deer—–lion and lion is a example of carnivorous animals.

    They totally depends on animal and their products . You can also called them as NOn – vegetarians.

    Examples of carnivorous :- lion, tiger, dogs , jackals etc.

    The third category as according to the question is of omnivorous . Omni means “both”. So as per name they eat both plants , plants products and animals too.

    They eat according to their circumstances . They can be dependent on both to fulfill their requirements.

    For example :- bear eat plants leaves and fish both.

    We humans are also omnivorous. We loves to eat both plants products and animal products too.

    So , this is basically the third category @omnivores animals. Hope you will be satisfied with my answer.

    Thank you!!

    Living heterotrophic organisms are divided into three categories omnivore, carnivore, herbivore.

    One by one we will be discussing all the three categories in brief as these all three are interconnected.

    Carnivore- carnivore are those organisms which only eats the flesh of other animals. The animal that they eat can be any living organism. Carnivore animals are known as carnivorous.

    Example of carnivore- Lion, jaguar, tiger, crocodile, etc.

    Herbivore- Harbivour are those organisms which only eat green plants and trees aur grass. These types of organisms are called herbivorous.

    Example- deer, goat, sheep, elephant, etc.

    Now let’s discuss category in which the organisms eat both the flesh of other animals as well as the green plants and trees, those organisms are called omnivorous. The category of omniverse are those who are both harbivour and carnivore.

    Example- humans, bear, dogs, cats, certain insects, etc.

    Now as additional info there is another category that is known as cannibals. These are those certain individual organisms who can eat the flesh of their own species.
