By Dania and Farah 6A
As a physical adaptation chacma baboons have cheek pockets to store food and they also have razor sharp teeth to defend themselves against predators. As a behavioral adaption they never wander to far from water.
Egyptian Mongooses claws are adapted to dig in earth for bugs and insects to eat.
Grant's Zebras and a little in Indiahave strong teeth and sharp hooves to protect themselves from predators. When predators are sighted the zebras gather so the predator cannot tell one zebra from the other.
Nigriceps Ants live in the whistling thorn acacia because it has special glands called "nectaries" at the tips of their leaves that produce a sweet secretion just to feed the ants, while the earth cracks up during dry seasons and gets waterlogged and spongy during the rainy season making is difficult for ants to build nests.
Plants of Savannas and their adaptations and a little in India
Umbrella thorn acacia
has a deep taproot so that it could get water during the dry season. The acacia's umbrella-shaped tops enable the tree to capture large amounts of sunlight with the smallest possible leaves.
In wet months baobab stores water in its thick and corky trunk so that it has water in the dry ones.
The and a little in Indiajarrah tree has long roots. This makes it possible to pull up underground water during a drought. It's lignotuber(a large swelling underground) can store carbohydrates, and can make it possible for a young jarrah to grow back after a fire.
The red and green kangaroo paw's adaptations are tiny wooly hairs on its flowers. The little hairs help by making it taste weird to predators, so they won't eat it. The little hairs also help by holding on to water because it grows in a dry climate.
