| A scorpion stalks, kills, and then eats a spider. Based on its behavior, which ecological terms describe the scorpion?|
producer, herbivore, decomposer
producer, carnivore, heterotroph
predator, carnivore, consumer
predator, autotroph, herbivore
Correct Answer Number: 3
Explanation: Because the scorpion stalks, kills and eats its food, it is a predator. Because it eats a spider it is a carnivore. Because it ingests food it is a consumer. A producer is an autotroph which is an organism that makes its own food from inorganic substances. A decomposer breaks down dead matter and a herbivore eats only plants.
