What rhymes with omnivorous?
Well carnivorous obviously and herbivorous. The onlyother word I can think of his ‘cadaverous’.
Not a good word for a poem. Too pale and wan and, well, too cadaverous really.

Coots are cute,
Their diets vary,
They eat plants and snails,
But not dairy.

We’ve got coots in our garden,
in southern New South Wales.
I say they eat our lettuce,
Tom says they eat the snails.
