The relationship between predators & prey is often described as the balance of nature. Predators are wild animals that hunt, or prey on, other animals. All animals need food to live. Opposite of the predator, you have prey. Predators come in many shapes and sizes and can be found on any continent of the world. Hot desert climates, icy cold polar climates, rainforests, jungles, mountain tops, valleys, oceans, and lakes. Predators are found in nearly every habitat know to us.
