1. What are two adaptations animals use to get food?
Two adaptations are to hide or just act like they are a stick or a leaf. Or they will look like camoflauge. Two adaptations that are made by animals for food are animals that eat meat are adapted to find and catch the animals they eat. A hawk is also adapted to catch and eat other animas.
A hawk is also adated to catch and eat other animals. The hawks strong wings carry it high in the sky where it can look for food on the ground. The hawks sharp eyesight allows it to see long distances. The hawks sharp claws and beak helps it catch other animals such as a rabbit. The spider makes a web out of stickey thread. It will use insects for food. Two adaptations animals use to get food are its eyesight to see from high above. Its claws are an adaptation too. They are used to grab the prey that the animal is wanting. Most birds get their food from these two adaptations. Those are two ways animals catch their food.
Two adaptations hawks use for getting food are their eyesight. Their eyes help them looks for food. Another adaptation is their hooked beak. It helps it catch and eat stuff like mice.
Two adaptations to help animals get food are protective coloration and poisons. Those different adaptations help a lot for animals everyday with food.-
1.Two adaptations that animals use to get food. Some animals camouflage themselves to ambush their prey.
A hawk is adapted to catch food. Its strong wing carry it high in the sky so it can look for food on the ground. The hawk’s sharp eyesight helps it see field mice on the ground.
An anteater is also adapted to catch food. It tears apart ants nest with its long sharp
claws. Then it draw the ants to it tubelike snout with its long sticky tongue. Two adaptations that animals use to get food is some animals set traps and wait for their food tocome to them. Another adaptation is animals that eat meat are adapted to find and catch the animals they eat.
1 adaptation is surviving just to get the food that the animal requires. The 2nd adaptation is getting use to your new surroundings.
An animal that eats other animals are adapted to catch the animal and eat it. Some animals make a trap to catch the other animals.
One adaptation a carnivore has for getting meat is the way its teeth are shaped. For example, a shark has short, sharp teeth suited to catch and eat other fish. Another adaptation is the way a hawk’s beak is shaped. Since the hawk is a carnivore, its beak has a hook on it in order to catch and tear meat. Those are two adaptations use to get food.
The beaks or bills of many birds are adapted to help the birds catch and eat food they are different birds. The Hawk’s strong wings carry it high in the sky. Spiders make webs of sticky threads, and he eats the insect caught in the web.
What adaptations help protect animals?
The adaptation is the animal's color or there hiding skills to stay away from the predator trying to eat them.
Many animals that run away have good sight and hearing. A rabbit has large ears. Its ears help the rabbit hear a fox or other predator coming. Then the rabbit can run quickly to a safe place.
Student # 22
Some adaptations animals have to protect themselves from their enemies are their color patterns and the way their color changes throughout the seasons. This helps the animal by blending in with its surroundings so the animal’s enemy will not notice it.
The color of the fur on a snowshoe rabbit helps it protect its self. It is brown in the summer and white in the winter. The color white blends in with the snow. It will see the predator before it will see the rabbit. So that it gets a head start to get away.
2. Some animals camouflage themselves ambush their prey. Some animals have teeth and can swim or run fast.
Some adaptations that help protect animals are good sight to see from far distances, good hearing to heart from far distances, adapting to their surroundings so predators won’t notice, and protective coloration helps protect animals to blend in with their environment. Those are ways animals use adaptations to protect themselves.
How adaptations help protect animals is the have adaptions to hid from predators. Like a katydid when it is being chased it can jump into a tree. When it dose it looks like a leaf and the predators will not see it and it will not be ate.
If an animals predator moves into a space were that animal was living it would have to move and find a spot on its own. That would protect him because he would be away from the predator. Student #21
Many adaptations keep animals from being eaten. Most of these adaptations help the animals run away, hide, or flight. Some animals use poisons to defend themselves. Dragonfish have a sharp pointed fins coated with poison. Some animals change color with the seasons. The snowshoe rabbit is brown during summer. It turns white during winter. Student #9
1 adaptation is looking like their surroundings. And the 2nd adaptation is being camouflaged to hide from predators.
Animals use camouflage to hide from predators. Also they use disguise like the butterfly it spreads its wings and it look bigger.
The adaptation help the animals run a way, hide, and fight the other animals some have well hearing, eye sight, or are fast, some look like there surroundings.
Many adaptations keep animals from being eaten. Most of these adaptations help animals run away, hide or fight. Rabbits have large ears to hear a predator. The shape of animals helps them hide in the background. Student #15
3. What behaviors help animals?
Behaviors like hiding, running or the animal will turn into camouflage.
One example for a behavior that helps an animal is when a toad sees a snake, it puffs itself up so it looks larger than it really is. This behavior sometimes stops the snake from swallowing it. Toads that behave this way are more likely to live.
One behavior that helps animals survive is special parts on an animal’s body that are very sharp. Another behavior is when an animal takes a big deep breath in to puff itself up. The animal might do this to stop another animal from swallowing it. There are some behaviors that help animals survive.
Some behaviors help live through winter. Migration helps butterflies live through winter. In the summer here the butterflies stay here, but in the winter they fly somewhere like Mexico. Butterflies are not the only ones who migrate. Birds and Canada geese fly south in the winter. Student #11
3. When a frog sees a snake the frog fills its lungs with air and blows up.
Some behaviors help animals live through the winter. Millions of monarch butterflies fly from parts of the United States to parts of Canada and Mexico for the winter. They fly south to where pounds are not frozen.
Butterflies fly south when the cold comes so they don’t freeze. If the butterflies stayed they would freeze and there would be no more butterflies left, they would become extinct and never be on the face of the earth. Student #21
Behaviors that help animals survive are also adaptations. When a toad sees a snake, the toad can fill its lungs with air. It puffs itself up so it looks larger. This behavior sometimes stops the snake from swallowing the toad. Student #9
One behavior is camouflage animals use this to both hunt and hide. Another one is poisons snakes use this. They use it to kill their prey.
Behaviors that help animals are called, adaptation. When a toad sees a snake It fills it’s lungs up with air, hoping that the snake will not be able to eat him because of his size. Toads that behave this way are more likely to live longer.
If the animals see their prater they get scared if it is there pray they will attack it.Student #23
Some behaviors help animals live through the winter. Migration is movement to new places when
s change. Student #15
4. Challenge! How could the eyes of a flounder help it survive?
The flounder can see both ways. So if a animal like a shark trying to eat them they wont get to eat them. Because he will see the shark and hide.
The eyes of a flounder may help it survive because if a predator comes near it, the flounder will see it and move away.
Eyes of a flounder can help it by it having eyes on both sides of its head. So if a predator is coming it can swim away to a safe place.
The eyes of a flounder could help it because a flounder stays on the ocean floor most of its life. Its side is the same color as the ocean floor so its blends in. If a flounder closes its eyes it will look dead to a under water animal that spots it. That is how the eyes of a flounder can help it survive.
The location of the flounder is on the bottom of the seashore. None of the predators would go down by the bottom. The flounde
r will survive because sharks and other predators do not think to go down there because they do not think that the Flounder and other fish would go down there.
The eye of the flounder is black just like some of the sand. I saw a flounder it would be hard to tell it was there. That is a good way of hiding from a predator that would be a real good thing for the flounder. Student #21
4. Sense a flounder lays on its side its eye is pointing up in the water so if any predators come by the flounder it knows not to move
A flounder can see all ways. So he can roll it’s eyes so if a shark is coming it will see it and it can get to a safe and the shark will not eat him.
Eyes of a flounder could help it survive by moving its eyes all around. If a shark cames the flounder will be able to tell by moving its eyes all aroung. Student #9
The eyes of a flounder look like rocks, if it looks like a rock then the flounder can’t get ate. This can help also, its body because it blends in with sand and rocks are in sand.-Student #10
The eyes of a flounder could help the flounder like this, when a shark comes by for a little midnight snack the flounder will just blind in. The eyes of a flounder see both ways, so it will not die.
It can see it’s pray to eat and it can see it’s predator coming towards it. Student # 23
A flounder can see always. So he can roll its eyes, so if a shark is coming it will see it and can get safe. He blends into the background. Student #15
