penguin adaptions (please read)

Post by islandbreeze52 » Thu Dec 22, 2005 2:03 pm

ok so i have this project i need to do for my bio class over break and we have to think of 5 adaptions for each climate our animal would make. I got the penguin so i was wondering if any of you guys knew 5 things that it would need to adapt to the arctic, the rainforest, and the mountains. Thank you sooooo soooo much!!! :roll:

A project like this is rather simple. just imagine you were nature. If you were to relocate the pinguin in a warm area, you would need to get rid of excess fat. Just an example. Remember: Structure fits function!
