Can other natural omnivores survive on a plant-only diet and have a normal lifespan like humans can?

Humans can’t do it normally without supplements. So the answer is likely no they can’t we need fatty proteins, certain vitamins, omegas, or a supplement to provide them.

I guess it could be possible but not sustainable in “the wild” because meat is a lot more calorically dense than fruit and veggies. You’d have to spend a lot more time/energy to eat just plant matter. There’s a reason grizzlies bulk on salmon before hibernation and not just eat grass and berries you know 🤔

likely not, both because of not meeting all their needs but also because there are very few food that are as as dense in calories as meat, so these animals would need to feed for much longer which could get them in trouble in the wild.

So nothing besides 73 is normal? 70 is an unnaturally short life and 75 is crazy long?

You know what’s let’s be scientists. What’s the standard deviation gor that 73?

two standard deviations in either direction of the mean is ‘normal’ right? In the most scientific sense of the word.

Referring to humans, there’s a tremendous emphasis on the word “survive.” That’s about all they do without essential aminos from animal proteins.
