Adaptations Project
Animal-Hedgehog
Plant-Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera Physical Adaptation
Aloe Vera has thick and fleshy leaves, which are enlarged to provide the water tissue. The leaf cuticle is thick and covered with a layer of wax.
Hedgehog's Extra Adaptation
Hedgehog Habitat Information
Hedgehogs inhabit a wide range across a
variety of climates
and
terrains in East Africa
. They must have
dry shelters on well-drained soil and a good supply of ground-dwelling insects and other invertebrates
. Hedgehogs can be found in the continents of
Europe, Asia, Africa, and parts of New Zealand
. Hedgehogs are reported to be abundant in Suburban Nairobi, Kenya, which meets the perfect habitat conditions.

A Physical adaptation of this critter is the color of its fur and spines. The brown to gray color blends in with the more arid and hot habitat, providing camouflage to also protect from predators and to sneak up on prey easily without being noticed.

Since the plant has a waxy thick coat, the water droplets slide down to the roots and absorb in the tissue.
New physical adaptation
Thicker coat
How does it survive?
A thicker coat can provide the hedgehog with warmth during the winter. It also can provide the hedgehog with an option to hibernate if adapted correctly.
New Ecosystem
The Arctic
This squirrel has a thick furry coat which provides it with heat and warmth during the cold months.
