In this paper, we discuss the dynamics of a discrete-time leaf-eating herbivores model. First of all, to investigate the bifurcations of the model, we study the qualitative properties of a fixed point, including hyperbolic and non-hyperbolic. Secondly, applying the center manifold theorem, we give the conditions that the model produces a supercritical flip bifurcation and a subcritical flip bifurcation respectively, from which we find a generalized flip bifurcation point. And then, we prove rigorously that the model undergoes a generalized flip bifurcation and give three parameter regions that the model possesses two period-two cycles, one period-two cycles and none respectively. Next, computing the normal form, we prove that the model undergoes a subcritical Neimark-Sacker bifurcation and produces a unique unstable invariant circle near the fixed point. Finally, by numerical simulations, we not only verify our results but also show a saddle period-five cycle and a saddle period-six cycle on the invariant circle.
