Big fishes eat little fishes, which eat littler fishes, which eat bugs, worms, and microscopic animals, which eat algae and bits of plants, which don’t eat anything at all but instead get their energy from the sun. Energy keeps the ecological community alive, and the flow of energy from one organism to another is called a food chain.

What Eats What presents the consumers and producers that make up the food chain in a stream. It also tells a story of environmental research, something pioneered here at the Academy.

What Eats What is located on the second level.
