animals eat what nutrients they need. not only forage but they have to supplement their diet with minerals. a few years back in a hunting club, we had a place where the deer would literally eat the dirt and a big hole formed. we checked it out and the wildlife biologists said the "dig site" contained a lot of calcium that the deer needed. strange that they eat dirt but that's nature at it's best. the african-americans up here in selma buy "sourdirt" in the convenience stores when they're pregnant. it has something to do with the minerals. don't really understand that but some of my students have told me that they actually dig the dirt out of the ditches for sour dirt when some of their family members are pregnant.
