How do wild animals capture their food and eat it?
That depends on the kind of animal. Some animals are hunters, or predators, and are skilled at tracking, attacking, and killing other animals for food. For example, a wolf is an animal that has come to hunt in packs while a bobcat is an animal that hunts well on its own. These kinds of animals ususally have accute senses of smell, hearing, and eyesight. They will usually have sharp canine teeth, and smaller sharp teeth for shearing meat off a bone. Some birds are also hunters, like owls and hawks, they rely on their keen eyesight and their sense of hearing to hunt small animals, and their powerful feet to catch and kill them. Other animals are foragers, such as herbivores (plant-eating animals) like rabbits and squirrels. These animals eat what they can when they can, they usually have adaptations to help them avoid being eaten by hunting animals, such as excellent senses of hearing and smell, and the ability to move quickly. Then, there are animals that are scavengers. These guys eat what is left behind, such as vultures. Scavengers will use senses of smell to help them find a recent kill (or a recent road-kill). There are also animals that will rummage through our garbage (opossums, skunks, and raccoons that live in urban areas), animals that eat fallen fruit and leaves (decomposers like beetles and snails), and many, many other animals that have unique ways of finding and eating their food.
