You and the Food Chain
Have you wondered where you fit into the food chain? Because you are an omnivore and eat both plants and animals, you are a primary and a secondary consumer. In most cases you are also the tertiary consumer.
Sound complicated? Well not really, you see, the carrot you ate at lunch makes you a primary consumer, but the meatloaf you ate for dinner makes you a secondary consumer. Fortunately, unless you live next door to a family of cannibals, you will probably not have to worry about another secondary consumer trying to eat you! But even though people are mostly secondary consumers, we still cannot escape the decomposers. When someone gets very old and dies, their energy is eventually returned to the soil where it will be taken up by plants to begin a new food chain and continue the circle of life.
