Johannesburg City Parks and Zoo invited 1000 school learners to the zoo to learn more about our meat eaters.

Here are some interesting facts about carnivores:

- There are 12 families of carnivores consisting of 270 species

- Carnivores have large brains and a high level of intelligence

- Meat eaters have a less complicated digestive system compared to herbivores

- warm blooded meat eaters burn more calories and need to eat more often than cold blooded carnivores.
