  1. Butterfly’s live in the emergent layer of a forest, so if you are flying a helicopter or any other things you above the forests you will get a better view and because tall trees are standing together which is blocking sunlight from passing through they will have little to eat and they wont be able to reach right at the top however, Anacondas live on the forest floor where there are rusty leaves and stones sometimes there might be a puddle and they will gulp the flesh of any feast they will see.

  2. Camels live in deserts where it is hot and dry unlike penguins who spend half of their time on the ice and half of their tome swimming under water . Camels possess many adaptations that help them to survive in the deserts such as they have a hump where they can save any left over food or water whereas penguins are not in need of a hump as there is alot of sealife underwater to eat

  3. Girrafes have long necks to see predators however dolphins use their ears to hear predators.Dolphins have a streamlined body to swim under the sea whereas giraffes do not have streamlined bodies.Dolphins are suitable under water because they can survive there however giraffes are adapted in grasslands and savannahs because they have their food there.

  4. Polar bears are adapted to cold habitats because they have thick white fur on their backs.Polar bears are adapted to suit a cold environment.So if a polar bear was adapted to a desert it will not survive because it has a white thick fur which is on their back to make them cool down from the cold.

  5. Some Penguins live in the Antarctic, where it is extremely cold, and the water temperature never rises above freezing cold. Did you know some penguins live further North, but all penguins live in the Southern Hemisphere unlike giraffes who live in the savannah.Their long necks allow them to reach up and eat leaves however there are no leaves in Antarctica so penguins eat fish. Penguins know how to hunt fish on the other hand if there was a giraffe in Antarctica it would struggle because they are herbivores so they eat plants that they find.

  6. The tiger is the largest cat species, reaching a total body length of up to 3.38 m over curves and exceptionally weighing up to 388.7 kg in the wild. The tiger’s striped coat helps them blend in well with the sunlight filtering through the treetops to the jungle floor. The tiger’s seamless camouflage to their surroundings is enhanced because the striping also helps break up their body shape, making them difficult to detect for unsuspecting prey.Tigers mainly eat ambar deer, wild pigs, water buffalo and antelope. Tigers are also known to hunt sloth bears, dogs, leopards, crocodiles and pythons as well as monkeys and hares. Old and injured tigers have been known to attack humans and domestic cattle.Most Tigers live in Asia, specifically throughout Southeast Asia, China, Korea and Russia. Tigers like to live in swamps, grasslands,and rain forests. Usually where Tigers live there are trees, bushes, and clumps of tall grass.Recognizing a tiger at the zoo is easy. But in their natural habitat, tigers are really hard to find. That’s because their unique orange, black and white stripe pattern helps them blend into the forests and grassy areas where they live and hunt.
    Tigers are carnivores. They are quiet, patient hunters with large powerful paws and teeth to help them catch and eat their prey. Some of their favorite meals include pigs, deer, rhinoceroses, and even small elephants.
    Tigers hunt for their food but they are also hunted by humans for their valuable fur and body parts. Because of this, tiger researches think there may only be 3,500 tigers left in the world. This makes them an endangered species.
    The frog’s habitat is in or near a pond. Mostly frogs lay there eggs in the pond. This is because frogs spawn in the water. Most frogs are born in water as tadpoles and gradually change into frogs although some frogs, known as direct developers, are born as full frogs. As well as that, because the frogs are full frogs this allows them to live faraway and have their own freedom. They are allowed to do anything.
    First of all a frog lays some eggs. Next it starts yo grow and becomes into a tadpole. After it gets bigger and it becomes into a full frog.

  7. PENGUINS
    Some penguins live in Antarctic.
    penguins habatak is fresing as well as where it is extremely cold, and the water temperatures never rise above freezing.
    it dosen sads.

    The Amazon Basin and the South Pole are two different animal habitats, they have different climate and animals. The Amazon Basin is part of South America whereas the South Pole is part of Antarctica . In the Amazon basin the weather is hot and humid but in the South Pole it is extremely cold and dry and the temperature is very low. A small eared Zorro, a dog like fox lives in the amazon basin, and a penguin ,a flightless bird which lives in the South Pole, have different ways to be adapted in their habitats. A small eared Zorro is adapted to the amazon basin because they have webbed feet and fluffy fur.This feature helps the Zorro by protecting him from the heavy rainfall and keeps him warm. On the other hand, penguins adapt to their living environment because they have streamlined bodies which help them to swim up to 15mph.Furthermore, they have feathers so they can keep warm when they are swimming in the freezing water. While Zorro’s have short narrow legs which are well adapted to dense forests in the amazon basin, penguins have wings which help them fly under water.Although zorros and penguins have different ways of adaption to their habitats they still have similar features. Zorros are aquatic ,which means they live in the water and land. Likewise ,penguins are also aquatic and both animals have webbed feet

  9. The polar bears habitat is in the arctic were they play in the ice.polar bears don’t get cold because their cout is fat which keeps them warm.polar bears spend most of their time at their sea.

  10. polar bears.
    Polar bears are adapted to the artic. Polar bears are white they can blend in with the snow and ice. When a polar bear swims it closes its nostrils so no water can get through. Also there habitat is in the artic.

  11. Increasing levels of carbon dioxide and other gases like methane causes greenhouse effect,where sun’s energy is trapped causing earth and particularly oceans to warm.In the past 100 years human activities began to increase resulting in greenhouse gases escaping into the atmosphere. The rising level of CO2 is caused mainly by burning of fossil fuels, manufacturing of cement, chemicals and metals and deforestation.
    Impact of Global Warming:
    1.Crops could fail or be damaged by temperature change and extreme weather changes.
    2.Sea level will keep rising as the polar ice sheets and glaciers melt.
    3.Coastal cities are vulnerable with increased risk of flooding.
    4.In summer more heat waves are likely.
    How we can reduce Global Warming:
    1. Reducing waste by choosing reusable products, recycling paper, aluminium cans and glass will reduce CO2 emission.
    2. Wherever possible use public transport and bicycle instead of car.
    3. Switch off the lights if not in use.
    4. Finally but most important, tree plantation will reduce CO2 from atmosphere as trees absorb CO2 from atmosphere and release oxygen.

  13. The striped hyaena is one of the four species of hyena. They are carnivores related to cats rather than dogs, despite their dog-like appearance. Striped hyenas have pale cream/grey fur with thick, black, vertical stripes down their sides. The fur is long and coarse with a distinctive mane along their back. This mane can be held erect making the hyena appear larger than it is. It uses this mane in both aggressive and defensive situations.
    Striped hyenas are usually solitary animals with each individual having a home territory. Male and female territories may overlap, but female territories are always exclusive. Scent communication is important for marking territory and for greetings between individuals.They live in grasslands and in Savannah’s.

  14. A desert tortoise’ habitat is usually a hot and dry place. However, a polar bears habitat is in a cold place which has ice such as the artic. They use their big fluffy fur to keep them warm. If you put a desert tortoise in the Arctic, it wouldn’t be able to keep themself warm because it’s too cold. The tortoise is adapted to a dry place such as a desert. Whereas, a polar bear is always adapted to a cold place.

  15. We’re polar bears live Polar bears
    Polar bears live in Antarctica were it is freezing cold and can survive harshest of winters.polar bears live at the top of the world like Antarctic foxes. Polar bears can also live around big bisons and other Antarctic wild life.
    Habitat
    The polar bear habitat in is in a cold and snowy in antartica

  16. A polar bear lives in the cold, snowy Arctic lands. They are the largest land carnivores. Their home land is in the circumpolar Arctic region. Polar bears have adapted to be able to live in the water and on land. A polar bear is suited to this kind of habitat because they have white furs which help them to blend in with the snow and ice. A polar bear has a layer of fat under its skin which helps it stay amusingly sincere warm.

  17. A Rattlesnake’s habitat is extremely hot and has hardly any water at all, however a Penguin’s habitat in the artic is extremely cold and has water almost everywhere. Furthermore if you put a Rattlesnake in the artic it would die of the cold or it would drown because it can’t swim, it is also adapted to the dry desert so the Arctic would be too cold for it to survive. If you put a Penguin in the desert it would die from the heat because it has features on it’s body to keep it warm, meaning it would be to warm and die. Deserts have very few plants growing, like the famous cactus, unlike the Artic where there can be plenty of plants growing during the warmer seasons.

  18. Lion
    the lion habit is some were hot because the live if it was hot not when its raining. because there suitable of the hot but if it was raining all the time lions would die and they wouldn’t get confusable.

  19. 1.They live anywhere on earth.
    They even live in Antarctica.
    2.The animals habitats is like in the rain forest
    and it is a little small.

  20. Polar bears live in the cold in the North Pole or the arctic land. Polar bears are white so it can stick together with the snow and ice .However polar bears are never cold because it has a layer of fat under its skin to keep it warm. It also has thick layers of fur. They have large paws to make them walk through the ice and snow.when polar bears swim under water it closes its nostrils so no water can get in.

  21. The frog’s habitat is in or near a pond. Mostly frogs lay there eggs in the pond. This is because frogs spawn in the water. Most frogs are born in water as tadpoles and gradually change into frogs although some frogs, known as direct developers, are born as full frogs. As well as that, because the frogs are full frogs this allows them to live faraway and have their own freedom. They are allowed to do anything.

    First of all a frog lays some eggs. Next it starts yo grow and becomes into a tadpole. After it gets bigger and it becomes into a full frog.

  22. The Dhole is a type of wild dog which is adapted to coniferous forests, broad leaf forests,tropical forests and grassland habitats likewise the Red-ruffed lemur which is a primate is adapted to the tropical forest too.The Red ruffed lemur is only adapted to tropical forests however the Dhole is adapted to many habitats such as I showed you in the first sentence.The Red ruffed lemur cannot survive in the grassland habitat because there are no trees for it to climb on.

  23. A giraffe is used to their habitat because they eat leaves so their long necks can help them to get leaves from the tall trees however legions are used to their habitat too because they can swim very well so they can catch krill in the ocean.Giraffes threats are pocahers who want their meat ,coat and tails similarly penguins have threats such as sharks ,sea lions and many more and global warming is affecting their habitat in the North Pole.Giraffes are used to their weather in hot continents such as Africa because they don’t have fur because they will be too hot so they just have a coat on the other hand penguins have thick skin and lots of fat (blubber) to keep warm.Also penguins huddle up with their friends to keep warm and have high body temperatures to remain active.

  24. Polar Bears!
    Polar bears are adapted to the artic. Polar bears are white they can blend in with the snow and ice. When a polar bear swims it closes its nostrils so no water can get through. Also there habitat is in the artic. If a polar bear lived in a desert its fur will not be thick and it mite not have any thing to eat. <3<3<3<3

  25. A penguin ‘s habitat is in the South pole, where there is mostly snow and water,unlike a giraffe’s habitat in the Savannah,where there is long,yellow grass.If a giraffe was in the South pole,there would be no leaves to eat,likewise with a penguin,if it was in the Savannah,there would be no fish to eat.Global warming is affecting the poles, as the ice is melting,destroying many animals’ habitats.
    Penguins live on remote islands away from predators and are flightless birds with flipper like wings extremely suited to swimming,furthermore making them unable to survive on Savannah dry land ,whereas giraffes have hoof like feet allowing it to gallop and is also very suitable for walking on solid ground.

  26. Giraffes are adapted to their habitats because there long
    necks,which stretch almost 2 meters above there body,helps them to get fruit and leaves up high in the trees. Whereas,Polar bears are adapted to their habitats because they live in the cold, snowy Arctic lands where they eat small rodents, seabirds, waterfowl, fish and eggs.Like many animals,Giraffes have camouflage colored coat, which helps the die in with the bush of tree when predators want them as their prey.However,Polar bears have white fur,that helps them blend in with the snow and ice.Furthermore,Giraffes have long necks so they can see when predators are coming from a distance.Polar bears have a layer of fat under its skin which helps it stay warm.It also has a thick layer of fur because their habitat is very cold.But,Giraffes have hooves that are good for walking on solid ground,however they are not suitable on snow because they would simply sink in it.

  27. Snakes live in deserts,the pythons can eat prey bigger than it’s head by using it’s lower skulls jaws.Snakes are capable of sneaking on prey,the boa constrictor can strangle its prey then every time it breathes out the boa constrictor would squeeze harder then the animal would die.The grass snake would sneak up on its prey then it would pounce afterwards and settle down on its meal.

  28. Tigers like to live in swaps,grasslands and rainforests in Asia, tigers usually live in trees, bushes and clumps of tall grass.
    Eagles live in American wetland habitat such as seacoast, large lakes or marshes or other large bodies of open water with abundance of fish.
    Eagles live in wetland habitat however, tigers live in swamps and clumps of tall grass.

  29. b
    because polar bears have fur which fit for freezing cold tempertures whereas lions have less amount of fur due to scorching tempertures over 30 degrees0c.whereas cat fish rarely tend to go out of water by using their gillsto act air to transform it to water and frogs tend to freeze themselves solid when its the winter season and survive due to a type of sugar which acts into the heart to race it. whole winter season.

  30. A giraffe can consume up to 12 gallons of water at one time when drinking from a water hole. They also obtain water from the dew on the leaves they eat and the water and they have long, tough tongues enable the giraffe to pull leaves from branches without being hurt by the thorns during feeding. They have prehensile tongues which allow them to hold branches by wrapping their tongues around the branches.Also,their tongues are up to 18 inches long. Whereas a lion has a rough tongue designed to peel skin of prey animal away from flesh, and flesh from bone.

  31. 1)
    The animals live in a zoo because if you let them go people will kill the animals and eat them for lunch . 2)
    The habitats are like the the Amazon if other animals live nearby the food they want they can go find thire own food.
    3) the threats are if you annoy one of the animals they’ll get angry and make some loud noises .☺️☺️☺️☺️
