Adaptations (2)
  • How do plants and animals survive?
  • How do they adapt to survive in their chosen habitats?
adaptations black widow spider
Adaptations : Black Widow Spider
  • Venom is about 15 times as toxic as the venom of a diamondback rattlesnake
  • Prey includes a variety of insects and other arthropods.
  • It makes small punctures in the victim's body and sucks out the liquids.
  • Resistant to many insecticides

The female eats the male after mating!

adaptations collared peccary
Adaptations : Collared Peccary
  • Tough snout to overturn dead vegetation to look for roots and shoots.
  • Can eat prickly pear cactus, including the spines.
  • Can go for days without drinking water
  • Powerful musk can aid communication between individuals
adaptations coati
Adaptations : Coati
  • Strong curved front claws to move rocks and dig for food
  • Powerful smell to detect prey
  • Long bushy tail used for balance
  • Can easily climb trees to forage for fruit, berries and birds eggs.
adaptations roadrunner
Adaptations : Roadrunner
  • Can adapt the surface area of wings and plumage to absorb or emit heat.
  • Usually nests twice in a year, during the seasonal rains.
  • Vibrates its throat lining to move air past moist respiratory tissues during very high temperatures. This increases evaporation from within the bird.
adaptations roadrunner6
Adaptations : Roadrunner
  • Able to run at up to 15 miles an hour, to outrun predators.
  • Its speed also helps it to catch prey, such as scorpions, lizards, and other small animals.
  • Can also kill and eat rattlesnakes. It uses its wide rings to deflect any striking fangs.
adaptations diamondback snake
Adaptations : Diamondback Snake
  • Has a pair of pits between eyed to detect heat from mammals, even at night.
  • Brown/grey colour to blend in with its surroundings.
  • Uses a rattle in its tail for a warning when alarmed.
adaptations gila monster
Adaptations : Gila Monster
  • Very toxic venom, used against predators.
  • Its pink or orange colour provides perfect camouflage in its natural habitat.
  • Lives in cool burrows during hot days.
  • Thick tails provide food and water reservoirs.
adaptations round tailed ground squirrel
Adaptations : Round-tailed Ground Squirrel
  • Its tawny coat blends well with its surroundings
  • Lives in its cool burrow during the hottest times of the day.
  • Stands on its hind legs to look out for predators
  • Makes its home near creosote bushes, where the roots bind the soil together.
adaptations the jojoba plant
Adaptations : The Jojoba Plant
  • A waxy coating reduces water loss by evaporation.
  • Seeds are toxic to many animals if eaten…except Bailey’s pocket mouse!
  • Leaves face the early and late sun, but not the midday sun. This helps to conserve water.
  • Bailey’s pocket mouse collects and stores the seeds : so many seeds can germinate.
adaptations the ocotillo
Adaptations : The Ocotillo
  • Loses its small leaves during dry spells.
  • New leaves can grow within five days after receiving water.
  • Wide and shallow root system to collect ground water.
  • Stems are capable of photosynthesis during dry spells
adaptations teddy bear cholla
Adaptations : Teddy Bear Cholla
  • Covered with sharp spines to stop animals from eating the tissue.
  • The spines cool the cholla’s tissue in hot weather
  • Stem consist of segments . The segments provide water storage, and allow photosynthesis to happen.
