  • A herbivore is any animal that only feeds on plants. They are often prey for carnivores and omnivores. To counter this they have adapted various ways of either defending themselves, or escaping from the predator. These methods are listed below.
  • Herbivore is a fleet officer and mascot of the crew Phantasm and a member of the flag Reign of Chaos on the Viridian Ocean.
  • Herbivores (Japanese 草食種) are weak monsters that eat vegetation from grass or trees instead of hunting for meat. They are usually docile monsters which may attack or run away if threatened. They range in many different sizes and species. Although they are all in the same group, many of the species are not closely related to each other. While other monsters in the series are known to have a strictly herbivorous diet, such as Diablos and Duramboros, this list refers only to those that belong to the in-game classification of Herbivores.
  • A Herbivore is an animal that feeds entirely on plants. Unlike Carnivores, Herbivores tend to be more peaceful and easier to handle in a zoo. However, some Herbivores such as the African Elephant can be surprisingly moody and can break out of their exhibits if not cared for properly. Herbivores are also very social beasts and will often become stressed if not kept with other members of their species.
  • A herbivore is an animal that eats plants (or producers). They are the second organism in a food chain.
  • Herbivores were organisms that ate plants. On EarthWorld, the guidebook claimed that it meant they'd eat you if your name was "Herb". (PROSE: EarthWorld) Herbivores had different teeth. They had incisors, which were used for cutting up food. Their molars were used for grinding up food and their pre-molars were used for chewing food. They ate vegtables. The sheep was a herbivore.

  • An herbivore was any animal that ate only plants, such as fruits and vegetables. An herbivore was unlike a vegetarian in that it did not make the conscious choice to not eat meat. On Earth, the stegosaurus was a variety of dinosaur that was strictly a herbivore, of which fact Charles Tucker had to remind Malcolm Reed.

  • In zoology, a herbivore is an animal that is adapted to eat primarily plant matter (rather than meat). 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 make such choices. 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 carnivores and omnivores up the food chain. As such, they are termed the primary consumers in the food chain.
  • A herbivore is a creature that (when tamed) prefers to eat vegetable matter such as fruit, vegetables, fungi, and other plants. Apples and carrots are considered treats. They will eat safe vegan corpses such as lichens, mold, shriekers, blobs, and jellies if they find them lying on the ground. They will also eat melons, oranges, pears, wolfsbane, garlic, kelp fronds, and so on, but only when hungry. If they are very hungry, they will eat some people food like food rations, pancakes, and lembas. They will never eat meat products, meaty corpses, eggs, or tins.
  • Our understanding of herbivory in geological time comes from three sources: fossilized plants, which may preserve evidence of defence (such as spines), or herbivory-related damage; the observation of plant debris in fossilised animal faeces; and the construction of herbivore mouthparts. Arthropods have evolved herbivory in four phases, changing their approach to herbivory in response to changing plant communities.

  • A herbivore is any animal that only feeds on plants. They are often prey for carnivores and omnivores. To counter this they have adapted various ways of either defending themselves, or escaping from the predator. These methods are listed below.
  • Herbivore is a fleet officer and mascot of the crew Phantasm and a member of the flag Reign of Chaos on the Viridian Ocean.
  • In zoology, a herbivore is an animal that is adapted to eat primarily plant matter (rather than meat). 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 make such choices. Herbivores can be further classified into various sub-groups, such as frugivores, which eat mainly fruit; folivores, which specialize in eating leaves; nectarivores, which feed on nectar; among herbivorous insects and other arthropods, the level of feeding specialization can be far more fine-tuned, including seed-eaters ("granivores"), pollen-eaters ("palynivores"), plant fluid-feeders ("mucivores"), and those specialized to feed on wood ("xylophages") or roots ("rhizophages"). In other animals, the degree of specialization is not so advanced, however, and many fruit- and leaf-eating animals also eat other parts of plants, notably roots and seeds. 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. There is a misperception that if an animal is herbivorous, it represents less danger to humans than a carnivore (or, sometimes, no danger at all). This is not logically sound; few animals, even carnivores, will seek humans as a food source, but any animal will attack a human if necessary to defend itself. For example, in national parks such as the United States' Yellowstone Park, bison represent significantly more danger to humans than wolves, which are likely to avoid people. Of Africa's Big Five game (a term coined by hunters in Africa to refer to the five most dangerous animals to hunt: Rhinoceros, Leopard, Cape Buffalo, Elephant and Lion), three are herbivores. 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 carnivores and omnivores up the food chain. As such, they are termed the primary consumers in the food chain.

  • Our understanding of herbivory in geological time comes from three sources: fossilized plants, which may preserve evidence of defence (such as spines), or herbivory-related damage; the observation of plant debris in fossilised animal faeces; and the construction of herbivore mouthparts. Long thought to be a Mesozoic phenomenon, evidence for herbivory is found almost as soon as fossils which could show it. Within under 20 million years of the first fossils of sporangia and stems towards the close of the Silurian, around [ ] million years ago, there is evidence that they were being consumed. Animals fed on the spores of early Devonian plants, and the Rhynie chert also provides evidence that organisms fed on plants using a "pierce and suck" technique. During the ensuing 75 million years, plants evolved a range of more complex organs - from roots to seeds. There is no evidence for these being fed upon until the middle-late Mississippian, [ ] million years ago. There was a gap of 50 to 100 million years between each organ evolving, and it being fed upon; this may be due to the low levels of O2 during this period, which may have suppressed evolution. Further than their arthropod status, the identity of these early herbivores is uncertain. Hole feeding and skeletonization are recorded in the early Permian, with surface fluid feeding evolving by the end of that period. Arthropods have evolved herbivory in four phases, changing their approach to herbivory in response to changing plant communities. Another stage of herbivore evolution is characterized by the evolution of tetrapod herbivores, with the first appearance in the fossil record near the Permio-Carboniferous boundary approximately 300 MYA. The earliest evidence of herbivory by tetrapod organisms is seen in fossils of jawbones where dental occlusion (process by which teeth from the upper jaw come in contact with those in the lower jaw) is present. The evolution of dental occlusion lead to a drastic increase in food processing associated with herbivory and provides direct evidence about feeding strategies based on tooth wear patterns. Examination of phylogenetic frameworks reveals that dental occlusion developed independently in several lineages through dental and mandibular morphologes, suggesting that the evolution and radiation of tetrapod herbivores occurred simultaneously within various lineages.
  • A herbivore is a creature that (when tamed) prefers to eat vegetable matter such as fruit, vegetables, fungi, and other plants. Apples and carrots are considered treats. They will eat safe vegan corpses such as lichens, mold, shriekers, blobs, and jellies if they find them lying on the ground. They will also eat melons, oranges, pears, wolfsbane, garlic, kelp fronds, and so on, but only when hungry. If they are very hungry, they will eat some people food like food rations, pancakes, and lembas. They will never eat meat products, meaty corpses, eggs, or tins. When a herbivorous pet is used as a steed, it won't eat vegetables other than apples and carrots while you ride it, even if hungry. It will only do so when starving (which divide maximum hit points by 3). So if you don't have any apples and carrot and can't heal your pet, you might want to dismount it to feed it some fruits when it's hungry. For non-knight players, this will keep tameness unchanged (+1 for feeding and -1 for remounting it). Herbivores can be difficult pets to keep fed, especially for monks, who share a similar diet.
  • An herbivore was any animal that ate only plants, such as fruits and vegetables. An herbivore was unlike a vegetarian in that it did not make the conscious choice to not eat meat. On Earth, the stegosaurus was a variety of dinosaur that was strictly a herbivore, of which fact Charles Tucker had to remind Malcolm Reed. (ENT: "Future Tense") When captured by the Kzinti in 2269, the Chuft-Captain referred to Spock as an herbivore – an eater of "roots and leaves". Because of this classification, the Chuft-Captain refused to speak to Spock, and would only speak to Hikaru Sulu, because he at least ate meat. The Kzinti Telepath found it extremely difficult to read Spock's mind, because he could see images of Spock eating vegetation. (TAS: "The Slaver Weapon") The script of the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode "Homefront" described Jaresh-Inyo's people, the Grazerites, as having "evolved from herbivorous herd animals and as such loathe violence and confrontation."
