    How do heterotrophic organisms like fungi obtain their food?

    Remember that heterotrophic is another name for consumers. You might wonder why I put a photo of a mushroom (it is a type of fungi too)

    Oh no! A pop quiz! Any answer I'd give would be a guess. I'll have to take time to think back to my college days.

    Organisms like fungi secrete hydrolytic enzymes extracellularly through their hyphae (root like networks), which break-down the complex foods into simpler ones like glucose, amino acids, etc. These simplest molecules are then absorbed directly through their hyphae.
