This assignment relates to the big question of term 2, "How do living things change over time?" and selective breeding, what we've been studying in class, because when humans selectively breed animals for certain traits, for example the beagle for hunting, it can cause good changes in traits, the beagle has a great sense of smell, but may create health problems, the beagle may be at risk for epilepsy, achrondroplasia, and some other diseases, which leads to an evolution of the species, and the beagle has evolved to be a great tracker and hunter.
