Full Answer

An omnivore is an opportunistic eater, meaning it eats what food is available. Omnivores live in a variety of habitats, including in the desert, underwater, in the forest and in the arctic. Omnivores that live in the desert include rabbits and roadrunners. Fish such as parrotfish, catfish and damselfish are water omnivores. Forest omnivores include birds, such as robins or blue jays. The grizzly bear is an example of an omnivore that lives in the arctic.
