Who Eats What?
Cayman Islands Food Chains and Food Webs

Cayman doesn’t have large wild animals, but we do have an interesting diversity of wildlife, for which plants provide food and cover. Native plants and animals are interdependent, and are part of intricate food webs.

 
“When we try to pick out anything by itself,
 we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe."
 
John Muir, naturalist, explorer, and writer (1838-1914)
Paraphrased:
 
When one tugs at a single thing in nature,
he finds it attached to the rest of the world.
