Predators rarely kill and eat all available prey because: 1)predator and prey species often occupy the same trophic level 2)in an ecosystem prey species often lack protective mechanisms to deter being eaten 3)many predator and prey species have a commensalistic relationship 4)predator species often will switch its prey as one prey species becomes less abundant

    I believe it is one because if a predator eats all of the prey in its trophic level, then it is going to be very hard for the predator to survive.
