QUESTION 1 of 10

Here is a food chain:

 

 

 

 

 

GRASS   RABBIT   FOX

 

 

The arrows show where the food goes.

The GRASS is called the PRODUCER because it is a plant and makes the food that feeds the animals.

The RABBIT is called the PREY because it is eaten by the fox.

The FOX is called the PREDATOR because it eats the rabbit.
