A decomposer is an organism that recycles dead plants and animals. When plants, animals and even humans die, they become food for these decomposers. We already know that mushrooms are a decomposer since they eat decaying matter, but earthworms do as well. The waste that earthworms leave behind is full of important nutrients, like nitrogen and phosphorus. This makes it a great natural fertilizer.

Snails excrete feces from their anus, which is located towards the front of their body and inside their shell (on the same side as their head).
