Spiders eat 400-800 million metric tons of animals every year (mostly insects of course).
This isn’t just trivia.
Lots of people are concerned about the ecological impact of human meat consumption.
So it’s important to note that humans consume less than this: about 400 million metric tons of meat and fish combined. Whales consume in the same range: 280-500 million metric tons.
Next time someone complains about how much meat humans consume, ask them the old economist’s question: “Compared to what?”
Oh … and worry less.
