Environment- Killer whales inhabit all oceans of the world, although they are the most abundant in coastal in coastal waters 3 Adaptations- Adaptation1- Being a toothed whale The Orca, Killer Whale is a toothed whale with a total of 80 sharp teeth that allows it to be a efficient under water predator when it needs to catch other whales like, young blue whales Adaptation 2- Size The Orca, Killer Whale is the largest orca and sometimes called , “the wolf of the sea” with measurements of 27-33 feet in length this adaptation helps it because being the biggest whale of the ocean means there are no prey being able to eat it, which means it is on top the food chain and it will be able to survive longer Adaptation 3- Speed Orca Killer Whales are very fast swimmers. They can swim up to 30 mph which means they can have sudden bursts of speed which helps them to catch prey.
Strong swimmers - Polar bears can travel up to a speed of 10 kph - Have been known to swim continuously for 100 km - Enables them to catch prey Hollow fur - Traps air inside,Small and rounded ears - thus making the bear buoyant in water - The layer of airPrevents water from entering provides insulation betweenthe bears ears and freezing their warm bodies and thetheir eardrums, u see, big cold Arctic air and water -ears, more water! - Helps Insulation provided is lostconserve body warmth in sub- when fur is covered with oilzero temperatures
AdaptationsStingrays Its color helps to blend into the ocean floor so that when predators like sharks and bigger rays. Its tail is full of venom and is only used for defense but when a predator starts to attack it will stab its tail into them. Also in ancient times doctors used their venom as anesthetics.
