We bet you thought this was going to be an easy quiz, but when it comes down to carnivores, omnivores and herbivores that ease factor may not be as simple as you think. Sure, an animal might eat grass and grain, but you might not know their favorite delicacy is small rodents. Or, perhaps your carnivorous animal sneaks seeds, weeds, and fruit when you're not looking. 

While some animals are cannibalistic, others won't touch the stuff. While other animals would rather starve than eat meat, others will break with their ideals. We know you're an animal lover, but would you know what to feed them if the time came? Could you figure out what a llama or a camel eats? Do you know if a mouse just eats pellets, or do they eat everything? Are all birds omnivores, or do some just eat meat and others just eat plant-based foods?

Humans eat everything, but how about their closest cousins such as monkeys and apes? This is the quiz for those who are natural animal lovers - and foodies all the same. How do you eat? And do you think you compare? From peacock to pigeon to puma, how well do you know the animal world?
