Given a choice between a sirloin steak and a pile of grass, an herbivore will take the grass every time. If grass isn't on the menu, a salad will do. Herbivores eat plants.
Origin: The herb in herbivore reminds you that herbivores eat plants rather than other animals. If you know any giraffes, deer, or vegetarians, you might have some herbivore friends. If you have a friend named Herb, let him know he's safe around them. Unless Herb is your favorite houseplant.
Short description: any animal that feeds chiefly on grass and other plants.
- Being an herbivore was easy—fruits and vegetables don’t run away, after all.
- A museum release says the dinosaur provides insights on the hind foot of titanosaurs, a type of large herbivore that had long necks and tails.
- Even with other large herbivores, like an elephant or rhino, you can't go walk up to them and look them in the eye.
