  Herbivore - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Although such animals are sometimes referred to as being vegetarian, this term is more properly reserved for humans who choose not to eat meat as opposed to animals that are unable to.
The diets of some herbivorous animals vary with the seasons, especially in the temperate zones, where different plant foods are most available at different times of year.
Herbivores form an important link in the food chain as they transform the sun's energy stored in the plants to food that can be consumable by other carnivores up the food chain.

 Keystone species - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Without a consensus on its exact definition, we are left to illustrate the concept of keystone species with a list of examples.
A classic keystone species is a small predator that prevents a particular herbivorous species from decimating a dominant plant species.
Yet without the predators, the herbivorous prey would explode in numbers, wipe out the dominant plants, and dramatically alter the character of the ecosystem.

 American Red Cross- Animal Safety
In general most herbivorous animals are going to eat approximately 1-2% of their body weight in some form of "roughage." Roughage is hay or hay-like products (pellets, cubes, hay, etc.) In an emergency grain products ("concentrates") need not be given.
Animals often will return to a place they know as home, but you should not enter buildings that are already burning.
Loose animals on roads or highways can be easily injured and interfere with emergency rescue vehicles, so the animals should be directed towards a safer area such as a pasture.

 Dog - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dogs, like humans, are highly social animals and this similarity in their overall behavioral pattern accounts for their trainability, playfulness, and ability to fit into human households and social situations.
As with many species, the young wolves are more social and less dominant than adults; therefore, the selection for these characteristics, whether deliberate or inadvertent, is more likely to result in a simple retention of juvenile characteristics into adulthood than to generate a complex of independent new changes in behavior.
However, animal shelters in many parts of the United States report that the most-commonly available dog for adoption is the American Pit Bull Terrier or pit bull-type mixes, making up as much as 20 percent of dogs available for adoption, none of which would be registered with the AKC.

 Tooth Detectives
Students will be able to recognize the dietary habits of living animal species through the examination of their teeth.
Herbivores have premolars whose crowns tend to wear to flat grinding surfaces and resemble the more posterior molar teeth.
Herbivores and omnivores generally display three flat-wearing molars having a somewhat square (upper jaw) or rectangular (lower jaw) outline.

 [No title]
If a sector supports its maximum population of herbivores one year, the sector\rquote s ability to support herbivorous animals is reduced the next year by 15% the first year, 10% the second year of maximum population support and 8%, 6%, 4% and finally 2%, until it reaches its equilibrium support population.
Herbivores will 'look' ahead a certain number of tiles determined by their size and mobility, they will then move to the largest available source of their primary food source.
Herbivores are not awarded additional points, but omnivores get 50% more points than herbivores, and carnivores receive twice the points of an herbivore.

 Animal liberation and plant liberation
If these carnivores did not eat the old and diseased prey animals, those prey animals would, in fact, "wither and die." Additionally, the whole herd would suffer if the population got too large or dying members were constantly eating food that healthy members could eat.
Additionally, meat-eaters typically don't like to acknowledge animals suffering, yet when they raise the plant question they are admitting this since their underlying assumption is that since plants and animals both suffer, there is no unique reason to avoid eating animals.
That is, they are not animal welfarists who believe it is acceptable to exploit animals as long as their suffering is minimal, but rather animal rightists who believe, on face, that it is wrong to own animals and systematically exploit them.
