Adaptation

  1. 1. The process by which a species becomes better suited to its environment is called adaptation.
  2. 2. Adaptation of a camel Adaptation: Two rows of long eyelashes Function: Protect against blowing sand and the sun
  3. 3. Adaptation of a camel Adaptation: Nostrils can be closed Function: Keep out blowing sand
  4. 4. Adaptation of a camel Adaptation: Fat stored in hump(s) Function: Help it to survive long periods without food and water
  5. 5. Adaptation of a camel Adaptation: Thick fur and under wool Function: Provide warmth during cold desert nights and insulation against daytime heat
  6. 6. Adaptation of a camel Adaptation: Thick leathery patches on knees Function: Protect it from getting burn when it kneels on the hot desert sand
  7. 7. Adaptation of a camel Adaptation: Long strong legs Function: Help carry heavy loads over long distances and keep its body further away from the hot sand
  8. 8. Adaptation of a camel Adaptation: Broad, flat, leathery pads at the bottom of their hooves Function: Pads spread out when the camel places its feet on the ground thus creating a "snowshoe effect" and preventing the camel from sinking into the sand.
  9. 9. Thank you
