How much of an organisms mobility depends on its imperative to consume?

If you compare certain creatures, does diet/what they eat, contribute to their natural ability to be self-mobilizing?

    None! Because if what you think were true all sessile organisms would starve.

    None.

    Mobility is the ability to move

    not the actual moving.

    Probably you are thinking of the EXTENT of an organism's travel

    and

    that CAN be ONE influence

    but not the major influence.

    Consider

    for example

    migratory animals

    some of which certainly migrate for the sake of food and water

    but

    some of which migrate from food-rich regions primarily to MATE

    often to a place that is SAFER (from predators or whatever) for mating and producing young, but is less food-abundant.

    Also consider: a bird

    need not be as hungry as a cow

    to travel much farther than a cow.

    It has the ability to travel much farther, much faster

    and uses that to its advantage

    and even to play (see: online video of a raven apparently playing)

    whether or not it is hungry.
