Rainforest animals and their adaptations Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Animals and theirAdaptations
  • 2. Tropical rainforests are almost perfect for animal survival. Itis always warm, and there are no season changes bringingtimes when there is little food. There is shade from the heatand shelter from the rain. There is no shortage of water.
  • 3. PREDATORS Colour: Animals which display darker colours are more likely to be able to hide from predators. Glow: Glow worms use bioluminescence to attract prey to their snares in the darkness of the rainforest. Wings: Unlike birds which hunt for prey in open or coastal environments, larger birds of prey (owls, grey goshawks) who hunt amongst forest trees have wing shapes that enable them to manoeuvre between trees and also remain silent as they fly. Body shape: To cope with cool rainforest temperatures Tasmanian pademelons have developed a more rounded body shape which is better at conserving heat.
  • 4. Since the rain forest has many trees, a good adaptationwould be the one that allows animals to be able to climband forage for food in trees Monkeys and sloths are agood example of this.
  • 5. The second could be the adaptation to being able toswim and cope with a lot of rainfall, caimans, turtles andsnakes such as anacondas are a good examples ofthis.
  • 6. A third one could be being nocturnal to avoid the hightemperatures of the day and the competition from diurnalanimals such as bats. The little aye-aye, a small Madagascan primate  evolved to be a nocturnal feeder in order to escape the clutches of predators in the daylight.
  • 7. Another way is many of them have developedsome sort of camouflaging mechanism Looper Poison Dart Frogs caterpillars have many flashy look like greens, blues and part of the yellows to help warn green plant off predators but to that they also stay hidden attach amongst the leaves, themselves water, and sun spots to. Chameleons a Tigers change colors stripes to help them help it blend in blend into the shadows
  • 8. Another way of adaptation in birds is the development ofstrong or longer beaks. Toucans, Macaws and Herens arevery good examples of this.
