What are the Herbivorous Animals?
Herbivores are animals that consume plant material, typically for the purpose of digesting the cellulose in order to obtain essential nutrients.
While most herbivores have specialized digestive systems that allow them to break down plant matter, some – like the giant panda – rely on gut flora to do most of the work.
Most herbivores are folivores, meaning that their diet consists primarily of leaves.
Others, like the rhinoceros, are frugivores and primarily eat fruit. still others, like the koala, are give or take and will eat both leaves and fruit depending on what is available.
