Examples of scavengers include hyenas, jackals, opossums, vultures, crows, crabs, lobsters and cockroaches. Many mammals, birds, sea life and insects consume decaying organic matter when necessary but not exclusively. Lions, leopards and wolves mainly hunt for fresh meat, but eat carrion if they encounter it. Foxes and coyotes are more likely to eat carrion in the winter when food is scarce.
