Are there more carnivores than herbivores?

I think there is a pretty even amount of carnivores and herbivores. There might be a bit more herbivores because they need more of their species to survive, since the carnivores hunt them.


Why there more herbivores than carnivores in an ecosystem?

The environment can support more herbivores than carnivores. The carnivores keep the prey species numbers in check. Too many carnivores mean ultimate starvation.


Can there be more carnivores than herbivores in an ecosystem?

No, unless the carnivores themselves are cannibalistic. Otherwise, a health ecosystem thrives on there being less carnivores than herbivores.

Why are there more herbivores than carnivores in the animal kingdom?

It is the way nature plays out. The carnivores eat the herbivores, so it is impossible to have more carnivores then herbivores. If there are too few herbivores around, the carnivores begin to starve, so for that reason there will always be more herbivores then carnivores. Most carnivores protect there territories from other carnivores, killing them if necessary, because they instinctively know an area can only support so many carnivores based on food supply -- which for them are herbivores. Also many carnivores are capable of practicing birth control to some degree to keep their numbers appropriate for the number of herbivores that can sustain them.
