re:herbs to carns (umpity ump)
ok ok ok ok
here's one, I think
If rats are listed as one of the major contributors to the
endangerment of such things as the wildlife in Hawaii, and as a
contributor to such things as the extinction of the Dodo, wouldn't it
follow that it was a carnivorous herbivore?
Or is it so UNspecialised as to what it eats that it doesn't fit in
a niche of herbivore-only or carnivore-only?
Or is it a competitor in these habitats, rather than a predator?
I nominate the rat.
