Feeding is the process by which organisms, typically animals, obtain food

Feeding is the process by which organisms, typically animals, obtain food. Terminology often uses either the suffixes -vore, -vory, -vorous from Latin vorare, meaning "to devour", or -phage, -phagy, -phagous from Greek φαγεῖν (phagein), meaning "to eat". The evolution of feeding is varied with some feeding strategies evolving several times in independent lineages.

in the diets of fish-eating birds (Common Kingfisher Alcedo atthis, Great Cormorant Phalacrocorax carbo).

While amphibians continued to feed on fish and later insects, reptiles began exploring two new food types, other tetrapods (carnivory), and later, plants (herbivory). Carnivory was a natural transition from insectivory for medium and large tetrapods, requiring minimal adaptation (in contrast, a complex set of adaptations was necessary for feeding on highly fibrous plant materials). Durophagy : eating hard-shelled or exoskeleton bearing organisms. Egg predation : eating eggs (but also see " Intrauterine cannibalism " below), also Ovivore.

Feeding behaviour, any action of an animal that is directed toward the procurement of nutrients . The variety of means of procuring food reflects the diversity of foods used and the myriad of animal types. Migratory habits of birds, for instance, no doubt evolved in part as a result of seasonal food shortages; individual birds now, however, start migration before food becomes scarce.

Birds which eat fish are a common sight near the coast and in fresh water lakes. Let's look at some of their various fishing techniques. Our feeding times were the same daily and the heron would watch us throw the floating fish food pellets onto the water. The ravenous fish would cause the water to look like it was boiling as they broke the surface to suck in a pellet. The heron soon learned those pellets attracted fish. Often the heron would be waiting for us to bring the fish food out. He waited on the edge of the bank until a pellet would float by.

Piscivore - eating fish. Avivore - eating birds. Spongivore - eating sponges. There are also several unusual food sources which can give rise to opportunistic or desperate feeding behaviours, such as

Piscivore - eating fish. Herbivore - the eating of plants. Folivore - eating leaves. Frugivore - eating fruits. There are also several unusual food sources which can give rise to opportunistic or desperate feeding behaviours, such as: Cannibalism - feeding on members of the same species.

Feeding behaviour of fish According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the sinarapan, also . Most fish are food opportunists, or generalists.

Feeding behaviour of fish. Fish are very diverse and can be categorized in many ways. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the sinarapan, also a goby, is the world's smallest commercially harvested fish Whale shark. For example, the blue shark feeds on dead whales and nearly everything else that wriggles: other fish, cephalopods, gastropods, ascidians, crustaceans Feeding.
