It's usually agreed that you need to eat to live and that living to eat might be a tad unhealthy. But look at these cute animals having a go at it! From the cute-yet-gruesome sight of bunnies eating strawberries (so that's how Monty Python got inspired) to everyone except otters enjoying watermelons, it's a zoological dinner extravaganza. We've made this list specifically for your enjoyment.

However, animal feeding is not as easy as it sounds. From the extremely nebulous rules on cats and lactose to the fact that dogs shouldn't eat chocolate, you would do good to Google any relevant information before feeding that squirrel your sriracha-laden macaroni salad.

Probably not all he could eat. Just what was easiest to reach. Giraffes have tongues that can be up to 2 feet long, time to use that tongue!
