Behavioral Adaptations Competition
By: Ashley Norfleet
When animals survive on this earth, this have to own what is theirs or else someone will take their survival away from them. Animals fight to the death for their food, territory, and family. Safety is a key idea when trying to survive, but at times there will be bumps and bruises in life. Not just animals compete for resources though. Plants release toxins to restrict other species of plants to grow near them.
These elephants are competing for resources.
These kangaroos are fighting each other for something that one of them owns.
This walnut is restricting the plants around it to grow.
An example of imprinting is when baby ducks follow their mother duck because they attach to her. They follow her around for comfort and food. They truly love her when they have developed social attachment to her. They know that she will take care of those ducklings so they hang out with her.
