    humans are predators...and they eat predators...or some of them do...like dogs and cats and shark and bear. in the animal world (humans may be mammals and some act like barbarians...but we are not animals) anything is possible. especially if an animal is hungry enough. and even in the insect world...spiders, definitely predators, kill and eat other spiders and insects. reptiles like snakes kill and eat other snakes. crocs dont care what they eat, so long as it is some kind of meat. so in general i would have to say yes...predators eat other predators though it may not be its favorite meal.

    Of course,predators eat other predators. In the wild there are hundreds of different kinds of animals who feed on other animal, and others,and others.

    It is like a progression in the food chain. But I may not be too sure if certain predators feed on their own kind,like lions feeding on other lions.

    Yes they may. A mongoose will eat a snake, a wolf will eat a stoat. A polar bear was recently photographed eating another photograph.
