Browse → Animals → Bugs, Snails, Worms

There are about a million different known species of insects in the world, and many of them have their own favorite foods!

Lots of insects eat plants – think of a caterpillar you might have once seen in the garden, munching on a leaf! Some insects also eat nectar or sap. Other insects eat things that are naturally decaying. Certain kinds of insects, like lice, also get their food by living off other animals. Many insects will also eat human foods. Roaches and flies, for example, are particularly known to love crumbs and garbage. – Yum!
