Animal Adaptations Read each slide. Look at each picture. Answer each question.
Many animals have adapted to their habitat in order to survive. Some animals use camouflage.
This toad uses camouflage to hide from predators.
This lizard uses camouflage to hide from predators.
Camouflage helps hide this spider.
The dragonfly lays her eggs in the water. This is a type of adaptation.
Baby dragonfly nymphs live in the water for many years. Then one day they climb out of the water as an adult dragonfly.
The adult leaves the water to find a mate and lay her eggs. This is an example of adaptation.
Many animals have had to make adaptations to raise their babies.
Giant sea turtles come up on the beach at night to lay their eggs.
Baby turtles hatch at night. They rush toward the ocean and the light of the moon.
Many birds lay their eggs on land. Emperor penguins leave the water to raise their young.
This gull has left the sky to make a nest. Can you spot the eggs? They are camouflaged for protection.
Can you find the moth? He is shaped like a leaf. Insects also adapt to survive.
Animals that can hide from predators will survive. Animals that see better, fly faster, run farther, or swim faster, will adapt and survive.
The camel wins the prize for adapting in order to survive.
The camel has 2 sets of eyelashes to keep the sand out of his eyes.
The camel can close his nostrils to keep sand out of his nose.
The camel stores food in his hump so he can go without food and water for many months.
The camel has wide padded toes that keep his feet from sinking in the sand.
Camels have survived in the harsh desert because they have adapted.
Animals that can not adapt will not survive.
Animals that fail to adapt become EXTINCT.
Extinct is forever!
