Primary consumers are the herbivores of Earth, one step aboveproducers on the food chain. They are typically grazing animals andeat grasses and foliage.
The type of consumers there are is primary consumers. They feed on plants. Secondary consumers is the next one. They feed on primary consumers. The last one are tertiary consumers. They feed on the secondary consumers. Everybody depends on the plants or producers. However some us other names. As I h…ave mentioned before producers are plants. They produce their own energy through photosynthesis. The next one are herbivores. An example are deer. They feed on plants. The next are carnivores. They feed on other carnivores or herbivores. An example are lions. Scavengers are animals that feed on the remains of a dead animal. An example are hyenas. Finally when you die and are buried, you will slowly decompose. Your skin starts to fall from your bones and your nutrients absorbed. Decomposers help with decomposing. However your nutrients will be given to a plant or tree. An example is fungi. ( Full Answer )
Most people buy it in the supermarket. Some buy it in health food stores, at farmers markets, directly from small farmers, or grow their own food. Some even buy at least some of their food online.
They get food by eating other organisms, or they eat plants. Herbivore Carnivore Scavenger Omnivore
Some say GMO foods are safe, but others say the aren't. It is not actually known yet whether it is or is not safe, but some believe there are indications that it is not totally safe and may cause health issues in animals and humans.
Wading birds, such as herons, usually have three toes forward and one behind, all long to support them on soft surfaces. Flamingoes, however, have a very small first rear toe, with three toes forward, webbed for swimming, that are not so long as most wading birds.. What we see as the foot is only t…he toes. What we see as the lower leg bone is really the foot fused into a single bone, with a prominent heel joint that looks to us like a knee that bends backwards. Bird toes are as different as bird species, and fit their lifestyle. Most birds have one toe behind and maybe above, with three forward. Some birds have two forward and two behind, some have a toe that can shift from front to back, a few birds have only three toes forward; the Ostrich has only two toes forward. ( Full Answer )

They usually eat fish or scraps of food they can find. They like sea food -- prawns and other sources of fish. Their beaks are shaped so that they can sift-feed brine shrimp and blue-green algae.

They catch the food by putting their heads down, putting their beaks in the water upside down, and using their beaks to extract spirulina, which are definitely not shrimp (they are blue-green algae--not even the same Kingdom). Flamingos do this using bristle-like structures in the mouth as a filter,… opening and shutting their beaks very quickly to move the water in and out of the oral cavity (mouth)--the same way a baleen whale catches krill, which ARE little shrimps. Easy, but not simple. They use their beak to catch shrimps out of the water. Easy. NOT They eat a special algae that gives them their pink color (because it contains high amounts of carotenoids). The algae is named spirulina, which is renowned as a very healthy "whole food"nutritional supplement, and can be bought in health food stores. ( Full Answer )
They get their food by sticking their head in the ground almost using their beak as a drill and getting food from the ground,somtimes they stick they beak in water. They eat by putting its head upside-down into the water looking backwards. It takes in water that is rich in tiny organisms and filters… nutrients from the water with a comb-like organ on its tongue.

A Flamingo feeds on Brine shrimp and blue-green algae, the flamingo had pink feathers because of it's diet, the shrimp. Flamingos will then be eaten by bigger predators like wild dogs and ferel pigs.
Multiple markets are a result of different preferences in food.Often times advertisers must appeal to the consumers preferences inorder to sell product.
Each consumer type is specifically adapted to eat its primarysource of food. These adaptations show themselves in a specifictype of teeth or in their digestive systems.
it depends where the animal is from, but say inthe uk a secondry consumer such as a fox would Primarily feed on invertebrates like mollusks, insects, crayfish and earthworms however, they also love fruit with their favorite being apples, plums and blackberries. Foxes are also happy to consume a vari…ety of vertebrate such as rabbits, voles, mice, eggs, birds, reptiles, amphibians as well as fish and have even been known to attack deer fawns. where as a loin would eat things such as gnus (wildebeest) and antelopes, and eat a lot of meat. Male lions usually weigh 159 to 180 kilograms (350 to 400 pounds), but they can weigh more. It is the only cat with a mane. The prey consists mainly of large mammals such as wildebeest, impalas, zebras, buffalo, and warthogs in Africa and nilgai, wild boar, and several deer species in India. ( Full Answer )

A consumer is an organism in a food chain than obtains energy(chemical energy) from food such as another organism e.g a cow eats the grass. The cow is a primary consumer; a tiger eats the cow; the tiger is a secondary consumer So Anything in the food chain/web after the producer (plant) is a consu…mer ( Full Answer )
1) Lion is a consumer who takes a deer (who is also a consumer) for food. All Omnivores take another consumer i.e. herbivores for food!
There's a whole range of foods you can eat. There is a broad spectrum of vegetables and fruits, as well as nuts, seeds, grains, and lentils. Depending on personal choice of type of vegetarian diet, it may include dairy and eggs. If so, this opens up to include a range of cheese and yoghurt, as well… as a majority of most baked goods. The range of food is extensive, how extensive is up to how imaginative you can be with these ingredients. ( Full Answer )
Flamingos eat large quantities of shrimp. .....Not. They eat Spirulina -- a species of algae found only in a few lakes in Africa, the main one being Lake Tanganyika, which is the second- largest freshwater lake in the world. Spirulina has a HUGE amount of carotenoids in it (several versions of v…it A that make carrots have their orange color) which is why flamingos are pink. It is a very nutrient-dense food, and is one of the few foods that is considered to be 100% nutritionally complete. In other words, an animal can survive solely on spirulina -- and that is exactly what flamingos do. There's NO way the person who first answered this question could honestly mistake algae for shrimp...they are not even in the same Kingdom of living organism...my sincere recommendation: do not answer questions if you aren't sure of the answer. You might get someone in trouble. ( Full Answer )
they are large carnivorous animals which feed on small carnivorous animals. e.g. a rabbit (primary consumer) is eaten by a wolf (secondary consumer) which may in turn be eaten by a tiger(tertiary consumer).
There are three types of consumers, here are primary, secondary,and tertiary consumers, and three consumers in the food web aremice, snakes, and owls.
This may be a trick question, but I will jump right in and say, "All of them".
i dont know how many grams but I know how many oz it is 602 oz
I know that this isn't all of America, but i do know that the average American consumes about 1996.3 pounds of food a year. If you times that by how many Americans there are (sorry I don't know) then you have how much America consumes!
Consumers do not make their own food. Producers make their own food. Examples of consumers and producers are humans and plants.
something that eats everything in that particuler food chain, e.g, Grass --> rabbit --> fox --> human. (producer) --> (herbivore) --> (carnivore) --> (omnivore and top consumer) .

All flamingos are found in tropical and subtropical areas. The flamingo's most characteristic habitats are large alkaline or saline lakes or estuarine lagoons that usually lack vegetation. Lakes may be far inland or near the sea. A variety of habitats are used by flamingos: mangrove swamps, tidal f…lats, and sandy islands in the intertidal zone. ( Full Answer )
Treacle toffee and toffee apples are two traditional foods. British people enjoy baking a potato on the bonfire.
A frog eats bugs which are a form of meat therefore a frog would be a carnivore, meaning they eat meat. Thank you for asking.
Yes. Flamingos' pink coloration derives from pigments called carotenoids, which are the basis of red/pink/orange coloration in a variety of animals. These pigments cannot be generated by animals, but originate in photosynthetic organisms (plants, algae, some fungi and bacteria) and are then passed f…rom one species to the next via the food chain. There are 5 major carotenoids found in flamingos, coloring everything from their egg yolks and livers to their feathers and preen oil: echinenone, canthaxanthin, phoenicoxanthin, astaxanthin, and phoenicopterone. The 6 species of flamingos get their carotenoids from different sources, as a result of the fact that variations in bill morphology allow the birds to access and ingest different-sized prey items. These include diatoms, brine-shrimp, plant seeds, mollusk larvae, and, in particular, cyanobacteria such as Spirulina. Although these foods do not look pink on their own, they contain carotenoids that flamingos metabolize and express in their tissues. If you see pictures of young flamingos, you will notice that they are whitish-grey, rather than pink; you may also notice that there is quite a bit of color variation even among fully-grown adult birds. Depending on the species, flamingo juveniles do not start expressing their pink coloration until they are 2-4 years old; adults' pink coloration varies according to how many carotenoids they consume and how healthy they are. When flamingos were first held in captivity, keepers had a hard time maintaining the birds' pink color because they were stressed and not eating natural diets. Commercial food mixes were eventually developed, but not until keepers had tried a variety of other solutions (sometimes successful, sometimes not), including mixing carrot juice in with the flamingos' food and water.

FLAMINGOS can eat so diff. from humans. They can fly which is also what a human cant do either.
They poo it out I am not kidding. Added by Dr. Misha: uh, yeah, pooing comes After Digestion, which, technically, is the breaking down of food into nutrients which are capable of being absorbed by the body. Without exception, in all birds digestion starts starts in the crop, an organ in the thro…at. Since birds have no teeth (again, without exception), they need a way to break down food into particles that are small enough to pass through the alimentary canal. Most birds eat small stones or bits of gravel, which they store in their crop. When food is swallowed, it first enters the crop, where it is mixed with the gravel in order to be broken down, the same way our teeth pulverize food, before travelling through the rest of the GI (gastro-intestinal) system.

A carnivore eats only meat e.g a lion A herbivore eats only plants e.g a rabbit An omnivore eats both meat and plants e.g humans :)
Yes, there are 6 different types of flamingos, although they all belong to the same genus. They are: . Greater flamingo . Lesser flamingo . Chilean flamingo . James's flamingo . American flamingo . Andean flamingo
Consumers get their food through buying them at markets and stores.The consumers can also grow their own food and therefore are not tobe purchased.
An omnivore is a species that is considered to eat from a wide variety of food sources. An omnivore will consume things such as animals, plants, fungi and algae. Bears, skunks, squirrels and raccoons are all considered to be omnivores.
