Animal Adaptations

Types of Adaptation
  • Anything that helps an organism survive in its
    environment is an adaptation. 
  • It also refers to the ability of living things to
    adjust to different conditions within their
    environments. 
  • Structural adaptation
  • Protective coloration
  • Mimicry 
  • Behaviour adaptations
  • Migration
  • Hibernation

Structural adaptations
  • A structural adaptation involves some part of an
    animal's body.
  • Teeth
  • Body coverings   
  • Movement

Protective Coloration
  • Coloration and protective resemblance allow an
    animal to blend into its environment. 
  • Another word for this might be camouflage.  Their
    camouflage makes it hard for enemies to single
    out individuals.  

5
Mimicry
  • Mimicry allows one animal to look, sound, or act
    like another animal to fool predators into
    thinking it is poisonous or dangerous.

Behaviour adaptations
  • Behaviour adaptations include activities that
    help an animal survive. 
  • Behaviour adaptations can be learned or
    instinctive.
  • Social behaviour  
  • Behaviour for protection

Migration
  • Animals migrate for different reasons. 
  • better climate
  • better food
  • safe place to live
  • safe place to raise young
  • go back to the place they were born.
  • This is when behavioral adaptation that involves
    an animal or group of animals moving from one
    region to another and then back again.

Hibernation
  • This is deep sleep in which animals body temp
    droops, body activities are slowed to conserve
    energy.
  • E.g. Bats, woodchucks bears.
