Okay, I see where everybody is confused; so let me send your thoughts in a different direction, ad ask this of my excellent fellow quiz-mites:

What exactly is an animal, and what exactly is a carnivore, ladies and gentlemen?

Heksie, I think that you and I may be onto something here - was also thinking arachnid but then thought again.
Why is OWN asking us to consider what is an animal and what is carnivorous? :hmz: So, here's another one:

Carnivorous Snail??????? :)

Because, PNF, a carnivore is any flesh eater (not only a mammal) and an animal is generally anything alive that is able to move under its own locomotion. People seemed to be stuck in a limited view of what the definitions meant. And so we learn .. :dance: :dance: :thumbs_up: :)

Poisonous to Humans?
