Carnivore is derived from two Latin words; 'caro' meaning 'flesh' and 'vorare' meaning 'to swallow'.A carnivore is a flesh-eating or predatory organism. Even plants can be carnivorous, for instance, the Venus flytrap that catches insects and ingests them. But mostly plants are neither herbivores nor carnivores, but producers since they essentially manufacture their own food through photosynthesis.
