Shop for Insectivores Skulls Replicas Models – An insectivore is a carnivore that eats insects. An alternative term is entomophage, which also refers to the human practice of eating insects. Our percise skull can be used as a teaching tool, museum skull exhibit, home decor skull, or office decor skull.
The first insectivorous vertebrates were amphibians. When they evolved 400 million years ago, the first amphibians were piscivores, with numerous sharp conical teeth, much like a modern crocodile. The same tooth arrangement is however also suited for eating animals with exoskeletons, thus the ability to eat insects is an extension of piscivory.
