It is green in colour. Uniqueshape.How does the adaptions help it to survive ?The large eyes of the frog would help it locate tinyprey for food. If there is a predator coming, the frogwould be able to catch sight. Due to itssmall, compact structure, it would leap away to safetyquickly. The green colour would camouflage with theflora in the environment, providing protection for thefrog. The upright shape of the frog allows it to adaptto the features of a wetland, it is able to sit up onrocks, leap , and swim in the lake.
  • 3. Frangipani Plant Type of adaptation: Behavioural, relating to how an organism acts. What are the adaptations? A plants behaviour is based on its function. The frangipani plant blooms according to the amount of sunlight in the environment. The blossoms start off with direct sunlight, and if there is shade overpowering the area, the blossoms will physically grow toward the sunlight. Once the plant has fully grown, it goes through process called apoptosis, where the old leaves are shredded. How does the adaptions help it to survive ? The plant survives on the sunlight, it will automatically grow towards the sun, because the plant roots automatically use photosynthesis from the sun, to survive.
