Food Chain Game

 

 

 

Physical adaptations are any kind of changes to an animal's body that help it to survive, like camouflage or its body covering, or special parts that help it to defend itself or get food.

Behavioural adaptations are anything an animal does to help it to survive, like how it moves about, or how it protects itself from its climate or its predators (being nocturnal, for example).

The following websites should tell you some information about the animal you are researching:
