What is adaptation in animals and plants

(2) Answers

Adaptation is when a plant or animal make modifications to their body to survive in an altered environment. For example, the snow foxes' fur changes depending on the seasons. Another example would be blueberries. They develop thorns in order to protect the berries the plant grows. Pretty much all plants adapt. If you pay attention, when you put a plant next to the window, and when there's no sunlight shining on it, you should notice that it will start to lean toward the sun. Hope I helped!


Adaptation is a modified part of the animal that it was born with to survive in certain a certain way that it was suppose to survive. For example, Ducks have webbed feet, so they can swim. That is an example of an adaptive animal.
