What if carnivores eat plants/vegetables and herbivores eat meat?
Like, if lions consume vegetables(not to mention they like it or not). Will something bad happen to them? Digestive disorder etc?
Or an elephant eat meat?
Just presume this thing awkwardly happen, will the creatures die? What actually will happen?
Most herbivores rely on some level of insects eggs or bodies being included with the foliage. Some herbivores are even occasionally active in seeking some additional animal protein.
Duiker and muntjacs are known for eating insects or even mice when they can.
African duikers, Amazonian brocket deer, and Malaysian muntjacs or chevrotain are equivalent small-bodied, hooved browsers/grazers that consume additional nutrients as well as foliage. Each of these lives in heavily wooded rainforests but eat a range of leaves, grass, blossoms, seeds, fallen fruits, insects or other animal matter. Duikers eat some 80% fruit while chevrotain only 68% fruit along with 10% leaves, 20% stems & twigs, and 2% mixed animal matter, fungi & blossoms.

Carnivores have short, enzymatic digestive systems. If they eat plant matter with cellulose it provides dietary fiber and remains undigested. They may also be seeking a source of vitamins they do not make for themselves nor acquire in adequate amounts in their diet
Ruminants (cattle, sheep, goats and deer) use bacteria in the fore stomachs to digest plant fiber by bacterial fermentation. This is followed by enzymatic digestion of the remaining carbohydrates, proteins and fats in the small intestines. They can digest these high-energy molecules very well but not in large quantities.
Non ruminants (humans, pigs and wolfs) lack the fermentation chambers so they directly digest carbohydrates, protein and fat by enzymatic action. They specialize in handling a high energy diet so handle these materials in large quantities very well. Cellulose as insoluble fiber and pectin as soluble fiber are primarily needed for minor nutrients and vitamins but also pace the peristaltic rate of passage.
Will an elephant eat meat if its starving and thats all that is available?
No, it’s unable to digest it properly. So that would either do nothing for it…or make it really sick.
can you eat elephant meat?
I’m not asking if it is legal. I know its not.
I want to know if it is edible and what it tastes like.
that was a typo I meant I know it is illegal
in most of the world at least. you can still legally hunt elephant in parts of africa
Our ancestors ate mammoth and mastodon, so you could, from a dietetic point of view. It’s probably high in cholesterol, though. (No idea what it tastes like – I’ve never eaten any.)
Can muslim eat elephant meat? If can’t why?

is it okay to eat elephant meat?
Wow! I do not eat beef or pork , so an elephant is out of the question. (for me personally) To each its own but there are so many variations of food, why even bother. Leave the elephants alone, lol! But seriously!
