When you see a herbivore 'chewing' bones, DON'T WORRY, they havent decided over night that they are now a fan of meat 😜
This is actually a common eating habit which allows herbivores to get the nutrients they lack. This practice is called Osteophagia!!! ☠
Animals do this to supplement their diet with calcium and phosphorus that their bodies may be lacking. They will often use bones that are randomly found out in the bush 🍃
The giraffe is a strict herbivore, they merely chew on bones in order to gleam some particles of the nutrients they need. The same is true in many other species of herbivore; many types of antelope as well as buffalo and zebra have been observed chewing on bones that they have found in the bush!
