3 Highest Food Chain Herbivorous Animals

 

Animals are some of the most interesting and unique creatures on the planet. They have very specific needs, which means that each individual animal has characteristics that make them unique from other animals.

Herbivore

Herbivores are animals that eat only plants. They are not carnivores, like you might think of a meaty carnivore. Instead, they eat grasses and leaves. Because they’re not carnivores, herbivores don’t have canines (like your dog does), but they do have flat teeth with no canines at all! Herbivores belong to the order Artiodactyla—the so-called “even-toed ungulates” or “hoofed mammals” (because their feet look like those of pigs).

There are many different types of herbivore: ruminants (which chew their food) and pachyderms (which crunch down on tough vegetation). Ruminants include cows and sheep; pachyderms include elephants, giraffes and hippos

Deer


Deer are one of the most common animals you will see in your backyard. They’re also quite friendly, and easy to get along with. You can even pet them!

Deer live in forests, grasslands and other areas where it’s not too cold or hot during the year. They eat grasses, leaves and flowers that grow on trees or shrubs (they also eat bugs). Deer live anywhere from six months to two years depending on their age when they are born; young bucks can reach up to 10 pounds while mature doe deer weigh around 100 pounds at maturity.

Buffalo

  • Buffalo are found in the grasslands of the northern parts of North America and central Asia. They can be found in herds or alone, although they usually travel in small groups.
  • Buffalo have horns that grow out from their heads for protection against predators and other buffalo alike (the horns are used as weapons). They also use these horns to signal each other during mating season; if a male sees another buffalo showing off its horn, he will know how big it is so he can avoid fighting with it later on down the road!

Hippopotamus

The hippopotamus is a large, herbivorous mammal that lives in rivers and lakes. It is one of only two extant species in the Hippos genus (the other being the pygmy hippo). The hippopotamus is named for its barrel-shaped body, which may be up to six meters long and weigh as much as 2 tons.

Hippos are generally brown or black in color with white patches on their bellies and underside of their tails; males have longer canines than females do—a characteristic that helps identify them from other types of animals (including humans). They also have wide flat feet for swimming; this enables them to move quickly through water when hunting fish, frogs or other prey items they eat while underwater!
