  • A predator in a food chain feeds on the prey and obtains energy
  • When the predator becomes a prey to another animal in the food chain, it transfers the energy obtained from ‘its’ prey.

(ii) If a predator is too efficient and over exploits the prey, the prey population becomes extinct. As a result predator will also become extinct due to the lack of food and hence predator are said to be prudent in nature.
