Truth in Alphabetizing

Ch was just asking me to name the animals and letters on this poster from one of our old Citrus Lane boxes. I thought it was cute when she noted that "Mr. Nibbles [our yard bunny] and a yak both eat grass!" But things quickly went off the rails when she asked what vultures eat. 
"Uh, they eat leftover dead things. Like when there's a dead squirrel in the street, a vulture will come eat it up."
"But this squirrel is eating an acorn. Is he not dead?" 
"No, he's alive. He's fine. The vulture doesn't want him." 
Then she pointed at each animal on the page and asked if it were dead or not. Yeesh. Next time, I'll just tell her they all eat peanut butter sandwiches.
