Kwi-zoology, i-cannibalism kuxa isilwanyana sizondla ngesinye isilwanyana esikwafana naso. Ukuzondla ngesilwanyana esifana kwaneso sizondlayo okanye singathi ukubonakalisa ubu-cannibalism yinto exhaphakileyo kwintlalo yendalo yezilwanyana kwaye li-1,500 lezilwanyana ezilolu hlobo eselithe lashicilelwa. [1]

Oku akwenziwa kukushokoxeka kokutya okanye yindlala, njengoko bekukholelwa njalo ngaphambili, koko kuxhaphakile phantsi kweemeko zendalo kwiintlobo ngeentlobo zezilwanyana. [1][2][3] Cannibalism seems to be especially prevalent in aquatic communities, in which up to approximately 90% of the organisms engage in cannibalism at some point of the life cycle. Cannibalism is also not restricted to carnivorous species, but is commonly found in herbivores and detritivores.[2]
