PREDATION

the function or practice of stalking, containing, and murdering other animals for food. Prey selection can vary widely or be very particular, and some species store contained prey for future usage. Contained prey might be shared with offspring or other group members and might not be eaten solely by the achieving predator.

PREDATION: "The predation tactics of the alligator are fierce, thus why humans fear them so."
