NARRATOR: All living creatures need to find ways of getting food. Some are expert hunters. In the dark, this leopard barely moves as it stalks its prey. This kingfisher spots a fish...then dive-bombs into the water.
Not all animals hunt for their food. This squirrel munches in a patch of poppies. This bird gets a free lunch...and a free ride on the back of a hippopotamus. These vultures feed on leftovers.
Other animals trap their food in sneakier ways. The spider traps its prey on a sticky web. Then it wraps its meal into a silk bag to eat later. The flat flounder hides on the ocean bottom...until its food comes along. The mantis shrimp burrows under the ocean floor and waits.
