The main signs of animal life

The animals are characterized by heterotrophic nutrition.
Heterotrophic nutrition is a method of nutrition in which ready-made organic substances are absorbed from the environment in the form of food.

Different animals use different sources of organic matter, thus it can be distinguished:

1. herbivores – use herbal products as food.

2. Predatory – use animal products for food.

3. Omnivores – they use both plant and animal products for food.

4. Parasites – use the resources of another living organism (host organism), thereby harming it.

Most animals are capable of active movement. Some of them are at certain stages of individual development.

Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
