  21. mimicry
    an adaptation in which an animal looks very much like another animal or an object
  22. an adaptation in which an animal looks very much like another animal or an object
    mimicry
  23. what is the difference between camouflage and mimicry
    camouflage is when an animal looks like its suroundings, as mimicry is when an animal looks like another animal or an object
  24. what are the basic needs of all animals
    all animals need food, water, shelter, the right climate, and air (oxygen)
  25. would an animal survive if it moved out of its natural enviroment
    explain
    no, because it would not have the right climate, food, and adaptations to survive
  26. what is the difference between metamorphosis and the natural development of an animal
    give an example
    • in metamorphosis, the animal goes through changes, as in the natural development of an animal, the animal looks like their parents even when they are born
    • for example, a caterpillar does not look like a butterfly/moth in the beginning, when they hatch, but a bear looks like their parents when they are born-they only get bigger and heavier
  27. compare and contrast hibernation and migration
    how are they alike
    how are they different
    • hibernation and migration are alike because they help an animal meet their needs
    • hibernation and migration are different because when an animal hibernates, they don't eat food, and when an animal migrates, they still eat food.
  28. give an example of an animal adaptation and how it meets that animal's needs
    a bird needs the right size, shape, and weight for their beaks so they can get the right food
