# Eat Like an Animal

If you’ve ever wondered how a lizard eats — or want to eat like one yourself — you’ll love this video. Two guys try to eat the way animals do. They had to hop, jump, slam their heads on the table, and do other things that we humans wouldn’t call good manners. Of course, the animals all eat different foods. “Carnivores” are meat-eating animals that eat other critters. “Herbivores” eat fruits, veggies and nuts. And “omnivores” eat both sets of food. Depending on their favorite foods, animals have different-shaped jaws, teeth, and paws and claws for holding their food. But none of them eats off a plate very well.

Wee ones: If the guys eat like a cow, alligator, lizard, dinosaur, whale, groundhog, kangaroo, flamingo, and rhino, how many animals do they copy?

Little kids: Who has more legs, 3 flamingos together or a rhino?  Bonus: How about the cow, the groundhog, and the lizard? How many legs do they have all together?

Big kids: If the guys had to film each of the 9 animals twice and broke 2 plates in each filming, how many plates did they break?  Bonus: If it took 20 minutes to film a set of 3 animals, how long did it take to film all 9 animals?

The sky’s the limit: If you invite flamingos and alligators over for dinner, how many of each animal do you have if they have 24 legs in total and there are 8 more flamingo legs than gator legs?
