Satisfactory Essays
The number of producers compared to the number of consumers is less than the consumers. The amount of primary consumers is three while the secondary are three and the tertiary are four. The trophic levels these feeders animals occupy are second, third and fourth trophic levels. Also known as primary, secondary and tertiary consumers. The animals that form these trophic levels are rabbits, birds, deer, mountain lions, fox's, coyotes, owls, eagles hawks and falcons. The reason the energy pyramid starts bigger at the bottom and gets smaller as it goes up is because the bottom represents the producers which is much more than the others as they go up. Another reason for this could also be because the organisms on the top are less hunted leaving
