I would have expected an indent before "herbivores".

indent-region indents the region according to the current mode.
In a Lisp mode (e.g.
emacs-lisp-mode), selecting that as the region and using
TAB indents it as you say you expect, not as you show.
Why would expect it to behave similarly in Org mode?
(The section of the tutorial that you cite doesn't say anything about indentation, BTW.)
C-h f indent-region tells us:
indent-regionis an interactive compiled Lisp function in
It is bound to

(indent-region START END &optional COLUMN)
Indent each nonblank line in the region.
A numeric prefix argument specifies a column: indent each line to that column.
With no prefix argument, the command chooses one of these methods and indents all the lines with it:
fill-prefixat the beginning of each line in the region that does not already begin with it.
nil, call that function to indent the region.

Called from a program,
ENDspecify the region to indent. If the third argument
COLUMNis an integer, it specifies the column to indent to; if it is
nil, use one of the three methods above.
