Body Coverings
Camouflage and Mimicry
Questions
The finches on the Galapagos islands are all very similar, except for one big difference. On each island, the finches have a unique beak, each beak best suited for the food found on the island.
We believe that they all started with the same beak, but they adapted over a long period of time to best hunt the food in their home island.
An
adaptation
is a body part or a behavior that helps an animal be more successful.
Owls have adapted by having large eyes for good night time vision.
Feathers help birds keep warm, yet are very light to help with flight.
Bird bones are mostly hollow to decrease weight.
Ostriches have adapted to not flying by having strong legs that allow them to run quickly.
Every animal's body covering is an adaptation to help them survive.
Scales on a snake provide both protection and flexibility.
Porcupine Fish (Blow fish) can extend out poisonous spikes against attackers.
Polar bears have a thick, two layered fur that keeps them warm and resists water.
Bison have a thick winter and shorter summer fur.
Hedgehogs have a spike covered back to deter predators.
Dolphin's skin is very smooth to help them glide through water easily.
Camouflage
is an adaptation that allows organisms to blend in with their surroundings.
Mimicry
is an adaptation that allows organisms to look like a more dangerous species.
