The climate of an estuary depends on its location. Some estuaries have four seasons, autumn, winter, spring and summer. But others have two seasons, a wet season and a dry season. It is mild & humid in an estuary. The average rainfall & temperature also depends on where the estuary is located.
Human Activities
long feet help it stay up in deeper water
antennae can sense vibrations, smell and taste chemicals in the water to help detect prey or predators
gills/lungs have developed over time so that they can breathe in moist air
grey-blue camouflage & a streaked white neck to blend in with its surroundings.
Salt glands that remove excess salt from water.
Special pores in the plants pump out salt water through the leaves.
special glands to get rid of excess salt
to withstand the daily
exposure to salt water.
Seagrass
horizontal roots called rhizomes which help them stay put when waves brush up against them.
