Animals eat because they need ENERGY to grow and do their daily activities, like study, work, play, walk, run,...

According to what they eat, animals can be divided into 3 groups:

  • CARNIVORES: they eat other animals. They have got sharp teeth to hunt and kill the animals, and to tear the meat.

Cutters are very SHARP.
