The earth is a world of life rich in species. In addition to intelligent life human beings, there are millions of different kinds of creatures. Among them, plants and animals are the two most common types of life in nature. In addition to regulating the earth’s ecological system, the existence of plants has another more important role to meet the energy needs of herbivores.
I believe many friends know that animals are also divided into herbivores and carnivores. The types and numbers of herbivores far exceed those of carnivores. For example, sheep, chickens, rabbits, and wild boars are all herbivores, while wolves, Lions and tigers are carnivores. Every friend should know that there is a biological chain in nature, that is, herbivores eat grass, carnivores eat herbivores, and carnivores also have their own set of biological chains.
In the species-rich animal kingdom, we will find a very strange natural phenomenon, that is, once a herbivore encounters a carnivore, it will immediately escape. Someone once brought up such an interesting topic: Why don’t herbivores resist? Some people may say that herbivores are small and weak, and they can’t beat fierce carnivores at all.
Are herbivores all weak and small? In fact, some herbivorous animals are naturally very weak. They naturally have no resistance to the mighty carnivores. It is normal for them to run away. However, in the herbivore world, there are some animals that also have strong physiques, not weak at all, such as wild boars and bison.
I believe my friends all know that wild boar and bison are both herbivores with relatively strong combat effectiveness. If a wolf confronts a bison head-on, the probability of victory will be the bison. But even a herd of bison with good fighting capacity, once it encounters a tiger or a lion, it will basically be frightened and quickly run away, running slowly, and finally become the tiger’s food.
If the buffalo herd does not run away, but gathers together against the tiger and the lion, I believe that the buffalo herd, not the tiger and lion, will win in the end. Why do the more powerful bison herds run away without resisting when they encounter carnivores? Some people may say that tigers and lions are the overlord creatures at the top of the food chain, and bisons are normal when they see them.
However, the fighting power of wild wolves is far inferior to tigers and lions, nor can they compare to bisons. However, when the bison meets the wolves, they will not resist first, but fled in panic. This makes many people feel puzzled, so are herbivores so persuaded? I believe that many friends have thought about this issue, so why is this? Is it a bloodline suppression?
Maybe many friends who like to read some online novels will know the word bloodline suppression, which means that when a low-level bloodline encounters a high-level bloodline, they will feel fear and fear from the inside. Even if a very large low-level bloodline creature encounters a newly born high-level bloodline child, it dare not attack easily, because its bloodline will make it feel terrified.
So does the bloodline suppression described in the novel exist in the real world? For this question, scientists have not yet given a definite answer. It is possible that there is a certain bloodline influence between carnivores and carnivores. Today we analyze this problem from another angle.
Energy is the foundation of any living thing
For this, I believe that my friends will recognize it, whether it is plants or animals, their survival cannot do without energy. Plants produce energy through photosynthesis and store it in plant cells. However, herbivores obtain the energy they need to survive by gnawing on plants, digesting and using the nutrients in the plants.
If carnivores want to get energy, they can only do it from herbivores, thus forming a biological chain in nature. The formation of the biological chain is actually the transmission of energy, which is transmitted step by step to herbivores and carnivores through plants. In this transfer process, the degree of energy enrichment is different.
I believe that many friends understand the law of conservation of energy. The energy in nature will not disappear completely. They will continue to circulate in the ecosystem. As the energy body at the bottom of the biological chain, the energy it accumulates will be continuously transmitted to the pyramid-like biological chain. Plant energy is transferred to herbivores and stored in the body of herbivores.
Then carnivores prey and absorb the energy in the herbivores and enrich it in their own bodies. Therefore, in terms of energy intensity, the energy accumulated in carnivores is the most powerful, because the bottom plant manufactures The energy that comes out will basically be enriched in carnivores in the end.
Energy represents powerful strength, represents strength
The more energy, the greater the strength, and the stronger the strength. I believe everyone agrees. Our development of science and technology is actually the continuous development of energy applications. Our ability to go out of the earth and explore the universe also relies on powerful energy applications. The more powerful the energy, the more powerful human technology, and the same principle applies to the biological chain.
In the biological chain, the more energy that a kind of organism accumulates, the stronger the strength. The reason why tigers and lions can become the king of the forest, the fifth of the grassland, is because they can accumulate the most energy in their bodies and have the strongest combat effectiveness. We all know that the animal world is a world where the weak and the strong eat the strong. Herbivores can only rely on eating grass to obtain energy, so the energy in the body is far inferior to that of carnivores.
Even large herbivores like bisons are not as rich in energy as wild wolves. In fact, there is a qualitative difference between the energy in herbivorous animals and the energy in carnivorous animals. In addition to the great difference in quantity, the quality of energy may also be different.
The energy level stored in carnivorous animals is higher, and this difference in energy quality may be the bloodline described in the novel. When low-quality energy touches high-quality energy, there may be a natural fear, fear of emotions. Therefore, although the bison is much larger than the wolf, the energy in the body may not be weaker than that of the wolf, but because the energy quality is very different, the bison will feel scared when encountering a wolf, and I am afraid that it will first choose to escape.
Will humans be more powerful by eating carnivores?
Seeing this, I believe that many friends will have the idea, that is, if humans often eat carnivores, can they confront tigers and lions with their bare hands? From the perspective of the biological chain, humans are the overlord standing at the highest level. The energy in the entire biological chain should eventually be enriched in humans. According to reason, even if humans do not rely on technology, they can resist lions and tigers head-on.
But the truth is that everyone knows that if we don’t have weapons, we are not a tiger or lion’s opponent at all. Even if it is a wild wolf, ordinary people can’t deal with it when they encounter it. Although we are the overlord at the top of the biological chain, the physical strength is indeed not at the top. When this happens, many people may say that it is because human beings are intelligent creatures, and the main evolutionary evolution is intelligence, not physical strength.
The above is also a reason. In fact, there is another reason for this situation, that is, the main food of human beings is plants and herbivores. I believe many friends will discover the fact that the meat we eat is basically herbivores, and there are very few carnivores. Some people may say that carnivores are becoming fewer and fewer, and they are all protected animals. Who dares to eat them?
In fact, this reason does not hold. Human ancestors rarely ate carnivores. We must know that many animals are indeed very rare nowadays, and they have become protected animals. But in ancient times, there were a lot of tigers and lions, and there were also a lot of carnivores. Even so, people in ancient times rarely ate carnivores, mainly herbivores. Why is this?
The energy of carnivores is much more than that of herbivores. Why are herbivores dominated by herbivores since ancient times? One reason is that carnivores generally have strong offensive power. It takes time and effort for humans to overcome, and there is still a certain degree of danger. In addition, there is another reason that eating carnivores is not good for human health.
In the process of energy transfer in the biological chain, there is actually another substance that is constantly being transferred upwards, and that is toxins. Every plant has a certain amount of toxins. These toxins first enter the bodies of herbivores and then into the bodies of carnivores. Therefore, in addition to accumulating more energy, carnivores also accumulate more toxins.
If we are mainly carnivores, then more toxins will enter our body, beyond the ability of the human body to detoxify. This makes us more susceptible to diseases and affects health. Therefore, human ancestors have summed up these experiences through continuous practice, which animals can eat and which animals cannot.
In today’s technological civilization, many wealthy people like to eat some carnivores, and as a result, they spend money and suffer crimes and become ill. Therefore, more of us should eat healthy green vegetables, because the toxins in plants are the least enriched, and they can be disinfected after entering the human body. When you want to eat meat, you must choose herbivores, such as chickens, ducks, cattle and sheep.
