Re: Second bite

A second effort.  Heterotroph (biol) capable of utilizing only organic
materials as a source of food, as most animals and some plants.  (opposed
to autotrophic).  Hetero  - from others, not from self. Trophic: of or
pertaining to nutrition; concerned in the nutritive processes.

Please do not stop asking questions; we shall keep trying to clarify and
should continue to do so.  Thay way, everyone learns.
