Relating to or denoting an animal or animals preying naturally on others:
Mammals and birds in particular developed new forms, whether as fast-running herbivores, large predatory mammals and birds, or small quick birds and rodents.
If predatory birds expect their prey to fall to the ground, Schmitz and Auliya's argument runs, they would be unlikely to notice a lizard still hanging from a branch.
Predatory insects that locate prey through chemical sensing are not deterred.
