Name one type of animal habitat?
Animals live in different habitats based on their needs and adaptations to their environment. Habitats can be defined by the type of food, water, and shelter they provide. Animals may migrate to different habitats during different times of the year.
Habitat: The place where an animal or plant normally lives and thrives. Adaptation: A change in an animal’s behavior, physical structure, and/or physiology that helps it survive in its environment. Ecosystem: A community of living organisms (plants, animals and microbes) in conjunction with the nonliving components of their environment (weather, earth, sun, soil, climate, atmosphere) interacting as a system.
The Galapagos Islands are home to more than 40 species of birds that are found nowhere else on Earth. The African elephant can consume up to 300 pounds of vegetation in a single day. Mountain goats have special hooves with two toes that help them climb steep, rocky slopes.
