  • Adaptations
    • This is a way an animal's body helps it to survive or live in its environment
      • It is the result of the genes the organism inherits from its parents
        • Examples of adaptations include the shape of a bird's beak, the colour of the fur, the shape of the nose or ears.
    • Three Types of Adapation
      • Behavioural -  Adult Penguins huddle together during winter to avoid heat loss and survive until spring.
      • Physiological- Male penguins can go without food for 100 days - this allows them to survive when no food is available.
      • Structural - Penguins have a short stiff tail so they can lean backwards on their heels and tail.  This reduces heat loss from their feet to the ground.
