Animal Adaptations

adaptation a body trait or a behavior that helps an animal survive.
physical adaptation something on an animal's body that helps it survive.
behavioral adaptation something an animal does that helps it survive
migration when an animal leaves an area for a period of time but then it returns
camouflage when an animal hides without trying - its body blends in with the environment
mimicry when an animal looks like another animal - the predator thinks that the animal is something else and doesn't eat it
hibernate a sleep-like state - this helps the animal conserve energy in the winter when it is harder to find food
instinctive behavior actions animals do automatically - they just know to do it (breathing, hibernating, migrating)
learned behavior things that animals have to be taught (how to fly, how to hunt)
