Also, where are carnivores found?
Carnivores in the Forest The forest has many different animals some that eat meat and others that eat only plants. Some of the meats eating carnivorous animals in the forest are owls, wolves, lynx, and the weasel. The wolf eats many larger herbivores in the forest whereas the weasel feeds in small animals like mice.
Likewise, are humans in the Carnivora order? We do not belong to Carnivora; we belong to the order Primates. They're predators, but not carnivores--they belong to several orders in the superorder Selachimorpha, not order Carnivora. Now that the pedantry is out of the way Humans are omnivores.
Secondly, what animals are in the Carnivora?
