The aerial insectivore
bats Molossops neglectus and Eptesicus furinalis were only recorded on the edge of the fragments, and Desmodus rotundus were exclusively found within the fragments.
, zooplanktivores, omnivores, algivores, and detritivores occurred in all sampling sites.
The species recorded were classified according to their feeding niche, based on Nowak (1994), as insectivore
, frugivore, nectarivore or hematophagous.
Significant use of cottonwood patches during both seasons by several individual species and by insectivores
generally indicates that food resources may be higher in this habitat compared to tamarisk and residential patches.

The stream bottom is structurally more complex than the water column, and many benthic insectivores
show restricted movement patterns.
Paleontology, fossil records, indicates that insectivores
were the first placental mammals.
Hedgehogs are insectivores
, eating mainly beetles, worms and snails - and sometimes even birds' eggs.
Geographical trends were observed in the percent omnivores/herbivores and percent insectivores
were the best represented trophic category, followed by carnivores and omnivores.
They switched on the lights at dusk and scoured the illuminated tracts for red-backed salamanders, which are common nocturnal insectivores
that hide when they're not hunting.
consumers or omnivores, represen ted by a high percentage of insectivores
In 19,925 trapnights, 1295 individuals of 11 species of rodents and insectivores
were captured (trap success 6.
Sceloporus occidentalis (hereafter, western fence lizards) are common and conspicuous diurnal insectivores
that occur throughout much of western North America (Stebbins 1985).
such as winter wrens tend to occupy the lower canopy, he has learned, while seed-eaters such as the red crossbill keep to the uppermost branches, where cones are plentiful.
