Everyone has to eat. Learn about how animals have bodies designed to eat their favorite foods, and how at the zoo, we make mealtime and playtime one in the same! Through what they eat, all organisms are interconnected, from tiny decomposers, to fearsome predators, and our eating habits can shape the world many ways.
