What’s for dinner?
What do you like to eat?
All animals have a particular type
of food which they like to eat.
Most animals have bodies which
are developed especially to help
them catch what they like to eat.
Can you work out what these
animals like to eat?

catch them, their predators have to be even quicker!

I have long poisonous tentacles which I use to catch my
dinner.

Mussels have a strong shell which they use to protect
themselves, although this doesn’t put off some creatures!

sharp beak to catch my dinner.
