herbivorous (adj) (of animals) plant-eating/grass-eating.
Herbivorous animals are plant or grass-eating animals. Animals which feed only on plants or grass are herbivorous as against flesh-eating animals which are carnivorous.
- In spite of the opinion that meat is a strong food, it is surprising that all the tallest, largest, and strongest land animals are herbivorous, which goes to prove that a vegetarian food is as nutritious as meat.
- The law of nature is inexplicable. Herbivorous animals are harmless and feed only on plants and it is surprising that the carnivores feed on these innocent and harmless creatures.
