Best Answer

One that hunts other animals as prey is a predator. This can also include insects although an animal that eats nothing but insects is called an "insectivore."

Some animals such as bears eat meat and fish, insects and plants (berries, nuts). They are known as "omnivores." A "carnivore" is an animal that eats only the meats of other animals.


Carnivores: Lions, tigers, sharks, hawks (Birds of Prey, in general), etc.

Herbivores: Deer, horses, sheep, goats, etc.

Omnivores: Bears, hyenas, dingos, humans, etc.

Insectivores: Anteaters, many birds

An animal hunted by another animal is called a prey. An example of a prey is a deer to a wolf. The deer is the prey while the wolf is the predator.
