What do possums eat?

Possums are essentially herbivorous and insectivorous, meaning they will eat a variety of foods. Possums' feeding habits range from omnivores (the Common Brushtail possum) to specialist browsers of eucalyptus (Greater Glider), insectivores (Mountain Pygmy Possum) and nectar-feeders (Honey Possum).

In the wild, they eat young shoots, leaves, flowers, nectar and fruit of a variety of trees and shrubs. They also feed on insects. They do not eat fish.

Possums also enjoy a feed of bread and honey put out by helpful suburban homeowners. However, it is best not to feed possums as they may become dependent on people for their food supply.

They tend to scavenge and have been known to eat pet foods.

Note: Possums are quite different animals from the 'opossums' of North America.

What eats a snake other than an owl?

Fox , Coyote

There are a lot of animals that will eat snakes other than owls. Almost any raptor (hawk, falcon, eagle, etc.) will eat a snake. There are a number of other mammals that will, as well, such as skunks, badgers, raccoons, weasels, and many more. Predatory wading birds like herons will also eat snakes - even other snakes will eat snakes! Really, just about any predatory animal that is large enough can eat a snake.

Can leaves that are not green make food?

Yes, leaves do not have to be green to photosynthesize and make food. The green is caused by chlorophyll, the most common and the most efficient, but not the only, compound that can extract energy from sunlight. Other pigments that can photosynthesize include cartenoids and phycobilins, and non-green leaves that photosynthesize range from brown and red seaweeds to red or yellow lichens and purple-leaved plum trees.

Food Chains and Food Webs

Do slugs eat ferns?

Yes, some types of slugs DO eat ferns. There are several different types of land slugs, so the answer to the question of what do slugs eat depends on which slug you are referring to.

The Selenochlamys ysbryda, also known as the ghost slug, can grow over two inches long. It is white in color, and actually is nocturnal. Due to its color and its nocturnal habits, it was named a ghost. It is a carnivorous slug, and feeds upon earthworms. It has teeth, which are extremely sharp.

The Arion lusitanicus, also known as the Portuguese slug, is part of the family of the Arionidae slugs. It's a larger slug, and you might be able to recognize it by its reddish brown color. It primarily feeds upon leaves, grass, and other plants in a garden.

The Arion vulgaris, also known as the Spanish slug, is native to Spain, parts of western France, and the south of England. It can grow up to twelve centimeters long, and has dark antennae. It is considered to be a highly invasive species of slug, due to their copious inhabitance in gardens. They primarily eat weeds, clover, grass, and other vegetation.

The Arion ater, also known as the black slug, can grow up to ten to fifteen centimeters in size. As the common name suggests, this slug is black in color. However, despite the name, this slug has been seen as different colors, including white. It primarily eats vegetation, such as grass, clovers, and leaves.
