One possible answer to your question is that God could have miraculously stopped animals from eating each other. There is another possibility. We know that before sin, animals only ate vegetation. By the time of the Flood, a number of animals may have become vicious because of the effects of sin. But we notice today that even with animals like wolves—which are of the dog kind—there are other dogs that are not vicious. So God could have chosen the more friendly ones to represent a kind. God could also have supernaturally caused the animals to hibernate much of the time.

Personally...I have taught my Son a bit about my OWN faith....but more importantly, I have insured he understands that upwards of 90% of the people on Earth hold one religion or another to be dear to them and define the values and morals they live by.
I've also been careful to educate my Son that whatever his feelings may come to be one the choices of other people, be that Sexual, Religious or other major personal issues which come to be known, it is their right to have made those choices...and NEVER his right to ridicule or belittle others as a result of them.
I.E.... I make sure my own son knows how truly ugly it is to be among those who would make fun of the vast majority who take religion as the most serious topic they know in life. After all, on some subjects, the casual insult can become downright deadly. Ask some folks who have drawn the wrong cartoon...
