Description

Animals that feed on fruit are frugivores. The most common frugivores are birds. Birds readily remove large numbers of ripe fruits from plants, and intact seeds generally pass through a bird's intestine quickly (normally within 30 minutes to one hour). In some species, passage through an animal's gut facilitates seed germination.
