can you identify a carnivore, herbivore, producer, primary consumer, secondary consumer and a tertiary consumer when given a food chain?

Carnivores like herbivores are in the second level of the food chain. Unlike herbivores that eat mainly plants, carnivores eat mainly other animals. Most carnivores get their energy and nutrients from eating herbivores.

herbivores are at the second level of the food chain and mainly eat plants.Herbivores are considered primary consumers and are the first consumers on the food chain.
