The Ent's are animals. Kickass one's at that!
17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 6/6/05 - 9:36:49 AM EST (GMT-5)
animals I'm pretty sure.
17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 6/6/05 - 9:40:36 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'd classify them as plants primarily because they are modified plants, rather than plants that have been transformed into animals (in the same way as a speaking dog is still a dog, rather than a person).

I think they're an evolved species of plant.
17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 6/9/05 - 6:35:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
plant i reckon

They were technically an army of trees, correct?
So they would be plants.

And some plants do move...
So.

I have never heard of this thing.
17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Friday 6/10/05 - 2:32:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
You've never heard of Ents? Kinda scary. I think they're plants.
17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Friday 6/10/05 - 2:48:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
So as I went on Google and did some research on this thing called ENTS, I have come to the conclusion that....I have no idea what they are, but they look like trees, so I'm going to say a plant that.....can apparently move.
17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 6/14/05 - 6:12:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
i'd say that Ents are plants... because i mean... when you move and replant, say, a shrubbery, it's remains a shrubbery

on that note, i'm pretty sure they don't eat anything either, they use phtosynthesis.. and that right there makes them a plant. i think anyway. i could be wrong.
but on the other hand.. they have nervous systems don't they? i don't think plants have nervous systems...
well.. venus fly traps do... okay i'm just arguing with myself in circles now... haha...
17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 6/14/05 - 6:18:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
Venus flytraps don't have a nervous system, although it's unusual for plants to move as quickly as they do. In that sense, the Ents are very animal-like (not to mention that, as you say, they have nervous systems and intelligence).
17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 6/14/05 - 6:32:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
they don't? oh.. my bad... i thought i saw it on a nature program once...

I wish I could remember the six things that classify if something is an animal that I learned in Zoology, but I can't.

So, I would say that they are plants, because they are autotrophic. But they do have a brain (or at least appear to have one), which is animalistic. But they are not very mobile, slow moving, which is plant like (tumbleweed) and animal like (sloth). But they need the opposite sex to breed, because they haven't had any children since the Ent Wives were lost, but that could go either way.

Oh drats, I'm torn! I can't decide!

Wow... Who the buck cares if they're not real?
17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Wednesday 6/15/05 - 1:37:16 AM EST (GMT-5)
What! What the hell is an Ent?

Don't forget they had that magical draught that they drank and when Pippen and Merry drank it, they grew taller.

animals. They are not trees, but tree-shepards. I'm pretty sure if you disected one (if they existed) it would have a nervous system. Also, plants don't speak, but the ents have a very specialized language, as well as knowing the common toungue. I don't know of any plants that can talk to me.
17 yrs ago - Monday 7/18/05 - 10:44:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
There are the guardians of the trees and trees themselves they have just evolved and how do we know plants can't talk maybe they just don't have anything to say!

hmmm.. . not many questions make me think as much as this one..
damn, i don't know.
17 yrs ago - Saturday 8/13/05 - 2:33:14 AM EST (GMT-5)
probably animals...
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 8/22/05 - 3:54:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
who freaking cares? they are the coolest things in middle earth. better than sliced bread AND night baseball....
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 9/11/05 - 3:32:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
Because of the growing influence of Philogenetics, they would be plants because they evolved from plants. If the Scientist studying them was real creative, he might make them into a new Kingdom.

animals
