Transcript of Animal Adaptations 3.4

Animal Adaptations
Physical Adaptations
A
physical
adaptation is a special characteristic about an animal's
body
that helps it survive.
Behavioral adaptions
are things that animals
do (their behavior)
that help them survive.
Life Processes 3.4
An
adaptation
is a way an animal has changed in its environment that allows it to survive.
Camouflage
is a
physical characteristic
helps an animal blend into its environment,
A gecko looks like tree bark.
A snowshoe hare turns white in
the winter to match the snow.
Mimicry
is a
physical adaptation
where an animal
copies the look of another animal to trick its
predators
.
This butterfly's wings look like an owl.
This caterpillar mimics snake's head.
Some animals have
special body parts
to help them survive.
Giraffes have long necks to reach the tops of tall trees for food.
Woodpeckers have pointy beaks to peck bugs out of trees.
Behavioral Adaptations
Hibernation
is a long, deep sleep an animal takes when it is unable to survive the long, cold winter.
Bears
hibernate
in dens. Their heart rate and breathing slow down while they sleep.
Migration
is another
behavioral adaptation
.
Some
animals move to another climate to survive long, cold winters.
Geese
migrate
to the south during winter months.
Instinct
is a
behavior
animals are born
knowing
how to do.
Baby birds are born knowing how to get food from their mothers.
Beavers are born knowing how to build dams. http://video.nationalgeographic.com/video/kids/animals-pets-kids/mammals-kids/beaver-kids/
Salmon are born knowing how and when to swim upstream.
Baby cheetah cubs need to learn to hunt from their parents (or other "adopted" parents!).
Even
YOU
had to learn how to walk!
