Adaptation project (6 7)

  1. 1. 6/7 Adaptation Project P6 Science
  2. 2. Adaptation of cockroaches1)The cockroach can survive for a week without its head.The cockroaches brain is scattered along the ventral (belly-side) part of its body that if you cut off the head of acockroach, it will still live for as long as one week; eventuallydying from starvation or thirst.2)A cockroach can survive without its heartA cockroach has a heart shaped like a tube. Its heart caneven stop without the cockroach dying.
  3. 3. Fox AdaptationAdaptation: Changes Fur Colour.• Function:Arctic foxes change from white, beige or light gray in the winter to brown, tan or black in the summer. This helps camoflauge them to protect them from predators and help them sneak up on their pray. Their winter coat also protects them from the cold so they can survive temperatures of -100.
  4. 4. Bearberry Adaptations Adaptation: low growing Function: It can stay out of the wind chill. Adaptation: Hold on to their old leaves Function: to keep themselves warmer and hold moisture
  5. 5. Bearberry adaptations Adaption: Bearberry is a low growing evergreen. It has a stem that rises 2-8" off the ground and is covered in a thick bark.Adaption:Bearberry’s fine silky Functions:hairs . To prevent dehydration.Functions:To keep it warm againstcold weathers.
  6. 6. The Adaptations of the cactus is :• A swollen Stem : To store water xD• Covered In Thorns : Helps protect it from animals to eat it (:• Being Greyish or Silver in colour : To reflect heat of the sun and toreduce water loss :3
  7. 7. Dessert tortoise’s Adaptation Adaptation : obtain water from diet Function : Do not have to drink water for a long time Adaptation : Burrows itself under the sand Function : protect from extreme dessert
  8. 8. GIANT PACIFIC Octopus• Adaptation: Suckers• Function: Octopus’s sense of• touch and sense of taste.•• Skin: It can quickly change its• skin colour quickly making its• predators (harbor seals, sperm• whales and sea otters) have• difficulty spotting it.
  9. 9. Owl Adaptation Adaptation : Sharp Talons Function : Catching prey on the fly Adaptation : Large eyes set forward on the head Function : Gives great depth perception for hunting plus retinas of their eyes are packed with low light sensitive rods to see at night
  10. 10. Gorilla Adaptation Opposable thumbs enables their hands to effectively grip objects and manipulate them, allowing them to make tools, Long Arms to climb easily Thin fur to keep cool
  11. 11. Money Plants Adaptations Adaptation: Water-drip leaves. Function: The rainwater will drop faster. Adaptation: Weak stems. Function: The use of weak stems is to climb onto walls, bamboo poles, etc.
  12. 12. Kitten Adaptation: four soft paws Function: so that when they jump down from building , they wont die Adaptation: flexible spine Function: this enables them to use more muscles when they run
  13. 13. Panda Adaptations Adaptation: Have a sixth toe and thumb Function: So that it can grip bamboo and tear the leaves off the stem. Adaptation: It has strong and smooth molars Function: It helps them chew rough bamboo.
  14. 14. Adaptaion : Their flipper shapedPenguin Adaptations wings and streamlined body help them to swim underwater at speeds up to 15 m. Function : To help them escape from predators and to catch prey. Adaptation : They have black and white countershading. Function : It makes them nearly invisible to their predators. Adaptation : They have a lot of feathers: 70 feathers per square inch.
  15. 15. Dolphin Adaptation Adaptation : Have blubber (fats) in their body. Function : To help the dolphin stay warm in cold water.
  16. 16. Penguin adaptationPenguins are designed for life in the sea. Some speciesspend as much as 75% of their lives in the water. (They laytheir eggs and to raise their chicks on land.) Heavy, solidbones act like a divers weight belt, allowing them to stayunderwater. Their wings, shaped like flippers, help them"fly" underwater at speeds up to 15 mph. A streamlinedbody, paddle-like feet, insulating blubber, and watertightfeathers all add to their efficiency and comfortunderwater. They also have a remarkable deep-divingability.In addition to blubber for insulating warmth, penguinshave stiff, tightly packed feathers (up to 70 per sq. in.) thatoverlap to provide waterproofing. They coat their featherswith oil from a gland near the tail to increaseimpermeability. Black and white countershading makesthem nearly invisible to predators from above and below.
  17. 17. Elephant
  18. 18. Viperfish Adaptation• Adaptation: Enlarged eyes• Function: Gather As much light as possible. Adaptation: Deadly Jaws Function: To ensure that the Prey they capture in will not escape.
  19. 19. Puppy Adaptation Adaptation: Triangular Shaped Nose Function: Humidification And Warming Of Air Before It Enters The Body Adaptation: Fluffy Colorful (?) Fur Function: Fur Is One Of Dog’s Largest Sensory Organ, Monitoring The Environment And Influencing Body Temperature.
  20. 20. Iberian lynx Adaptation Adaptation:Long Ears Function: Have keen sense of hearing to watch out for predators. Adaptation:Sharp Eyes Function:The eyes of the Lynx have circular pupils, which have an optimum area of focus for an animal which is both predator and prey.
  21. 21. I am the awesome hawk which YS chose for this project:D Adaptation: Hooked beaks Function: Rip the flesh of their prey. Adaptation: Sharp and strong talons. Function: Dig them into the flesh of their prey to kill them instantly.Hawk Adaptation <3
