Has anyone any information about the amount of energy oil eating
aquire from the "oil" they consume?

For an exhibition on chemistry I wish to compare the energy different
organisms get from the "food" they eat. So for many organisms it is the
proteins, carbohydrates and fats that provide the energy no matter what
they eat-blood, termites, flesh, nematodes, voles, seeds etc.
