### My consumed animals > Land animals for meat

There are numerous different land animals that are killed directly for the consumption of their flesh. The calculator takes into account the six most frequently killed species in Germany.

The basis of the calculator is the average consumption of the inhabitants of Germany, which was calculated according to this formula:

$$\frac {(Gesamtschlachtzahl \, pro \, Spezies \, Dtl. – Export + Sterblichkeit)}{(Einwohner \, Dtl. – (Vegetarier+Veganer))}$$

The extrapolation of consumption over several years takes into account the historical development of average consumption. The individual average consumption can also be adjusted with regard to a subjectively experienced consumption pattern that differs from that of the average citizen.
