Question:

How did plants survive in the flood? Where did animals, like a cattle, get their food after being released from the ark?


Answer:

Plant seeds can float and survive a flood, as evidenced by plants sprouting after the flood. "Then the dove came to him in the evening, and behold, a freshly plucked olive leaf was in her mouth; and Noah knew that the waters had receded from the earth" (Genesis 8:11). Even after this evidence, Noah waited another three months before leaving the ark. This allowed plenty of time for plants to begin regrowing.
