Predator prey relationships LO: investigating changing populations by looking at predator/prey relationships 1. Write down whether each one is a predator or prey. 2. For each of the animals, write down two adaptations that it has for either catching prey or avoiding being eaten. 3. Name two adaptations that many predators have for catching and killing prey. 4. Name two adaptations that many prey have to avoid being eaten.

Write down the longest food chain you can see in this food web
Write down a food chain from this video Whale shark and krill
1. Here are three food chains: Agrass rabbit fox Bwheat field mouse fox Cwheat field mouse grass snake 1Sketch a pyramid of numbers for food chain A. 2Use all three food chains to draw a food web. 3Name one producer in the food web. 4Name a primary consumer. 5Name a secondary consumer. aIf the field mice died, what would happen to the number of grass snakes? bWhy would this happen? cIf the field mice died, what might happen to the number of rabbits? dWhy might this happen?
