Food Chains Video
All living organisms need food to survive. Plants make their own food in their leaves. Plants are eaten by animals. These animals then become food for other animals, creating a food chain. In this example of a food chain, caterpillars and insects eat the plant leaves. These insects are in turn eaten by a bird which is then caught by a cat. All food chains start with the sun because plants need light to make food. Animals which eat only plants are herbivores. Animals which eat other animals are called carnivores.

In turn each part of the food chain is described starting with the producers, then the primary and secondary consumers, predator and prey. The frog fish is used as an unusual example of a top predator followed by a graphical representation of a food chain (tree, caterpillar, bird, bird of prey).
