Adaptation - Georgia

  1. 1. ADAPTATIONA PowerPoint created byGeorgia.
  2. 2. The Sugar Glider Physical Adaptation: Big Eyes: - Used to lookout for predators and to know where they are going when gliding. Flaps of Featherless Skin: - Used to glide from tree to tree and to catch insects while gliding. Tail: - To carry items such as bark and sticks. - Also used as a steering wheel when gliding.
  3. 3. Sturt’s Desert Pea Structural Adaptation: Long Tap Root: - Allows access to water in the deeper areas of the soil. Functional Adaptation: - The seeds have a long sustainability, and can grow after several years. It has a hard seed covering, which protects the seed from severe dry environments till the following rainfall. - When they bloom they produce seeds which are carried away by the wind, spreading them apart This helps them to survive and continue growing.
