Lepidoptera (butterfly and moth) larvae may feed parasitically on only a single plant, or they may graze on several nearby plants.


Animals may also be 'grazed' upon; female mosquitoes land on hosts briefly to feed on blood.In contrast, baleen whales eat millions of microscopic plankton at once, swallowing them alive.Seed and egg predation are true predation, as seeds and eggs are potential organisms.Predators need not eat prey entirely; for example, some predators cannot digest bones.Some may eat only part of an organism, but still consistently cause its death.
