Cats, for instance, are obligate carnivores, and have no need or ability to taste sweet; they do not have the teeth required to eat fruit, nor did wild cats encounter fruit in their natural environment, so they over time lost their taste of sweet as their bodies evolved to stop investing the energy in growing sweet taste buds. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse What is the capital of UK?
