Food Chain vs. Food Web   

1     What do we study to learn about an animal species? We study its anatomy and its behaviors. We study its habitat, its diet, and its enemies. The last two topics are essential for us to understand where the animal stands in its food chain and in its food web. But what is a food chain? What is a food web? And what is the difference between a food chain and a food web?
 
2     To answer these three questions, let's use zebras as our example.
 
3     Zebras roam freely in the African savannah. They feed on grasses. When zebras graze, they often share their space with animals like rhinos, warthogs, and antelopes that also eat plants. Zebras have no problem sharing their space with these herbivores. Zebras' biggest fear is to bump into hungry carnivores! Lions, cheetahs, leopards, and crocodiles would all love to eat them!
