All the animals are autotrophic

Dear Student,

Autotrophs can be described as the living beings that can synthesise their own food. For example plants synthesise their own food via photosynthesis. Their mode of nutrition refers to autotrophic nutrition. In contrast the organism which are dependent on other organisms for their nutrition. For example a cow depends on plants for nutrition. All the animals are heterotrophic because they depend on other organisms for nutrition.
Hence, the given statement is false.
