Review Food Web-6

I let mold grow on this stale loaf of bread. What part of the food web does the mold belong to?

  1. Producer.

    No. A producer captures energy from sunlight, and stores it as food. To do that, the organism needs to contain chlorophyll. This mold is green, but does not have chlorophyll.
  2. Primary Consumer.

    No. Primary consumers eat producers. This mold does not eat living plants.
  3. Secondary Consumer

    No. Secondary consumers eat other consumers. This mold does not eat animals.
  4. Decomposer

    Yes! Decomposers break down dead and decaying organisms. The mold is a fungus that is breaking decomposing the bread to get energy from it..
