Some hunters are roaming in the plush green forest of Africa. They spot a deer and kill it. They decide to roast the deer there and then eat it. When the hunters had just finished enjoying the feast of roasted deer, a lion attacks them. The lion kills one of the hunters and eats his flesh.
(a) Write a food chain which provides food to lion in this case.
(b) Which animal (other than deer) the lion could look for food if he did not get the hunter as prey?
(c) Which other animal in the forest could have been in place of lion?
(d) How does the above food chain differ from the food chain such as:
plants → goat → man?
a) Humans are at the end of most of the food chains in which they occur (as this picture of man taking home a fish for food shows)
b) But sometimes luck runs out and humans are forced to become food for others (as this picture of lion eating a man shows). Here the human is no longer at the end of food chain. Look at the miracle of GOD: hunter has become hunted!
a) Food chain
Plants → Deer → hunter (man) → Lion
b) If the lion did not get hunter as a prey, he could look for rabbits in the forest
c) There could have been tiger in place of lion, in the forest. Tiger too are flesh eating animal, they could have attacked the hunter.
d) In this food chain (plant—goat--man) man is at the end and he is eating the flesh of goat. Man is a predator here.
Whereas, in the other food chain (plants—deer—man—lion) man is not at the end of the food chain and is being eaten up by the lion. Man is a prey here.
