Taiga

The American Black Bear has
a thick coat which helps it keep
warm in the taiga

Arctic Tundra

The Arctic fox has adapted
a stealthy movement due to
its predatory nature.

Arctic Ocean

The Harp Seal adapts to the
cold weather with it’s heavy
coat.

Temperate Forest

The Panda adapts to the
temperate forest because
they can eat the bamboo with
their teeth because their
teeth are very strong.

Chaparral

Freshwater

Kangaroo rat

The kangaroo rat gets most of
their water from the seeds they
eat which are fond in the
chaparral

The American Alligator is
adapted to the Freshwater
biome because it has 3
different eyelids or layers of
eyelids that allow it to swim
underwater with its eyes open
and it doesn’t hurt.

Tropical Ocean
Grassland

The stonefish looks the way it
does because it helps it
camouflage in the tropical
ocean and not get eaten.

Temperate

The prairie dog has limbs that
are adapted to burying and
this is important because
animals in the temperate
grassland have to hide from
their enemies a lot and they
bury to get a way from them.

Savanna

The African elephant's
size makes them hard for
predators to eat, such as
leopards, lions, or
jaguars. At night, the
adults form a circle
around the calves to
protect them from
danger.

Tropical
Rainforest

The orangutan’s arms are long
which allow it to swing around
on the vines and trees easily to
get around.

Desert

The Thorny Devil’s spikes or
thorns help scare away its
enemies. It helps it not get
eaten as easily.

Alpine Tundra

The Yak uses its hooves and
horns to break the ice from
frozen ground and graze on
the grass.
