What kind of consumer is a panther?
Keeping this in view, is a panther a tertiary consumer?
Herbivores (plant eaters), including deer and rabbits are primary consumers. Omnivores (plant and meat eaters), including raccoons and opossums, are secondary consumers. Carnivores (meat eaters) including panthers, bobcats, alligators, and raptors are tertiary consumers.
Beside above, where is the Black Panther in the food chain? Black panthers in the Americas are black jaguars, while black panthers in Africa and Asia are black leopards. Black panthers are carnivorous, meat-eating animals that are at the top of the food chain.
Likewise, is a Black Panther an omnivore?
Black panthers are carnivores and at the very top of their food chain. The black panthers also climb trees and wait to ambush their prey. According to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, the black panthers mostly eat herbivores, such as antelope, deer, wild hogs, and wild boar.
What is a black panther predator?
Leopards and jaguars are apex predators, so in the wild they really don't have any natural predators (except for man). However, other large apex predators, such as lions or hyenas, might take a young, sick, or injured panther if the opportunity arose.
