What type of consumer are bears?
Bears are another example of consumers. Black bears are omnivores and scavengers, like skunks and raccoons, which means that they will eat just about anything. In a forest community, Black Bears will eat blueberries, bugs, acorns, and many kinds of nuts.
Is a bear tertiary consumer?
When the bear eats salmon, the bear is functioning as a tertiary consumer (this is because salmon is a secondary consumer, since salmon eat herring that eat zooplankton that eat phytoplankton, that make their own energy from sunlight).
Are sun consumers or producers?
The sun is not a producer in the food chain. Nor is it a consumer nor a decomposer. All food chains though do begin with the sun.
Primary Consumer - Animals that consume only plant matter. They are herbivores - eg rabbits, caterpillars, cows, sheep, and deer. Secondary Consumer - Animals that eat primary consumers (herbivores). Tertiary Consumer - Animals that eat secondary consumers ie carnivores that feed on other carnivores.
A consumer is any organism that can't make its own food. Consumers have to feed on producers or other consumers to survive. Deer are herbivores, which means that they only eat plants (producers). Bears are another example of consumers.
Primary consumers make up the second trophic level. They are also called herbivores. They eat primary producers—plants or algae—and nothing else. For example, a grasshopper living in the Everglades is a primary consumer.
All food chains start with energy from the sun. Plants are called producers because they are able to use light energy from the sun to produce food (sugar) from carbon dioxide and water. Animals cannot make their own food so they must eat plants and/or other animals.
noun Ecology. (in the food chain) a carnivore that feeds only upon herbivores.
They are tertiary consumers. Grizzly bears feed on Elk, beavers, rodents, and other small animals. they are secondary consumers.
The primary producers include plants, lichens, moss, bacteria and algae. Primary producers in a terrestrial ecosystem live in and around organic matter.
