Flatworms eat dead animal matter. They also eat on barnacles, and interior tissue of their prey. They wait until their prey opens their mouth and then they insert themselves.

A good example of a flatworm is a tapeworm. Tapeworms grow to 6 inches and attaches itself to the host's intestine. Tapeworms, and other flatworms are parasites that feed off their hosts, therefor causing harm to the host.

Flatworms are what you would call 'carnivorous.' They mostly feast on small invertebrates that can easily be captured due to their size. They are also known to feast on the dead bodies of animals that have sunk to the bottom.
