How can I select an item from a drop-down list like typesoffoodeatinganimals (eg carnivores, herbivorous) using Selenium WebDriver

Below is my code:

WebElement select = driver.findElement(By.id("typesoffoodeatinganimals "));
List<WebElement> options = select.findElements(By.tagName("Carnivores "));
for (WebElement option : options) {
    if("Germany".equals(option.getText()))
        option.click();   
}

But it is not working

Use this then it will work -

new Select(driver.findElement(By.id("typesoffoodeatinganimals "))).selectByVisibleText("Carnivores ");

also do not forget to import

import org.openqa.selenium.support.ui.Select;
