Hey, animal enthusiast! Let’s see if you really know what your favorite animals are eating! Do you know what a grasshopper is classified as? How about a tiger? What kind of animal is a hedgehog? Do you think you can answer these questions? Then this is the quiz for you. And if you want to learn the answers to these questions, guess what—this is the quiz for you, too!

Just in case you need a little refresher: Carnivores eat living meat. Herbivores eat living plants and vegetation. Omnivores eat living plants and animals, and detritivores eat dead and decaying organisms. With this quiz, consider what animals naturally eat. So while a farmer may feed meat to his sheep, and the sheep may eat it because it is mixed into its food, that does not mean the sheep is an omnivore. Since sheep naturally only eat vegetation, it would be considered an herbivore.
