Why do predators need to be eaten by their prey?
Predators are not eaten by their prey. It's the other way round!
tigers protect their self from predators because they need to catch their prey and when they have babies they need to protect their babies befor e they die and get eaten by the predators but, the tigers have to save their babies and they want to be in their way and the babies have to be save before they get eaten.
The connection between prey and predator is that predators are organisms that eat other organisms, and prey are the organisms that are eaten. For example, lion's are predators and zebra are an example of their prey. This can also refer to plants: rabbits are the predators and lettuce is the prey. Without prey, the predators would have nothing to eat. Without predators, the preyy population would increase to the point of overpopulation.
