Just being a nitpicking jerk today, sorry.
Don't zookeepers have to have some sort of education that would have gone over what bears eat? I mean, monkey's may not have technically been on the list, but 'other animals' probably would have been.
An omnivore is a kind of animal that eats either other animals or plants. Some omnivores will hunt and eat their food, like carnivores.
