swow frugivore

Welcome to class this week, students! We’re ready to learn here at University of E&E. Are you ready for today’s word?

Last week we learned about insectivores like me! Today we are talking about frugivores!

Frugivores (froo-juh-vawr, -vohr) : animals who eat mostly fruit as their main diet.

Can you think of any frugivores? I know one- orangutans! These large arboreal great apes love their fruit and spend a large part of the day looking for and consuming their favorites when they are in season!
