What do lily pads eat?
no lily pads do not eat because they are plants but they do have roots.
What eats lily pads i hear you ask ? well beavers do and also frogs edit- frogs do not eat lily pads. There are several critters than can eat your lily pads, from certain fish to aphids and snails and larval caterpillar type bugs. Actually, beavers will not EAT lily pads, they will only clear lanes in your pond to travel through. Frogs will not also EAT any significant amounts of lily pads. Even grass…
Frogs only sit on lily pads if the pad is large enough and the frog is small enough. The water lily is a pretty fragile plant, and the leaves are not very strong. Frogs can get pretty large, especially bullfrogs. People like to draw frogs sitting on lily pads because it makes a cute picture, though.
No, all frogs and toads are carnivores; which means that they eat meat. What frogs do use water lilies, or lily pads, for is this. When a tiny frog has just finished metamorphosing into a frog, sometimes these froglets have a hard time getting out of the water and they use the water lily to help them with that.
If there's one lily pad in a pond and it doubles its size each day and it takes 30 days for the pond to fill up how long will it take for two lily pads to fill up the pond?
The humorous answer is to say "there aren't two lily pads in the pond, only one." The mathematical answer is that identical lily pads would take 29 days to fill the pond (not 15), because after the first day, a single lily pad would be twice its size, or the same size as the set of two would be to start out.
Yes they can. There are many species of underwater plants. Seaweed or lily-pads for example. Both of them live mostly underwater, but can interact with the surface. Lily-pads do have flowers that break the surface for pollination. The pads are close to the surface for photosynthesis. Seaweed also tends to grow close to the surface, where there is more light.
