Behavioral Adaptions

Migration

Migration

The behavioral adaption that I chose is migration. Migration is basically the seasonal movement of animals looking for food. An example would possibly be a zebra, they migrate each year in a giant clockwise circle. Migration helps organisms survive because it gives them access to more food which you obviously need in order to survive. It also gives them a safer place to birth their young.

Hibernation

Hibernation

The second behavior I chose is hibernation. Hibernation is the condition that occurs during the cold that reduces an organisms metabolism(long period of time). The function on hibernation is to conserve energy during a period of time when sufficient food is unavailable. This helps organisms survive because when times are rough it gives the organisms food when needed and conserves their energy.
