Explain, with examples, why we find animals of certain kind living in particular climatic conditions.
Animals are adapted to survive in the conditions in which they live .
- Features and habits which help them to adapt to their surroundings are the result of their evolution .
- This is because animals developed these characteristics in response to the climatic conditions they were living in.
- They would be of no use in another climate .
This is the reason we find certain kinds of animals living in particular climatic conditions .
For example -
Animals in the polar region are adapted to the extremely cold climate .
They have special characteristics developed in response to the cold , such as white fur, strong sense of smell, a layer of fat under the skin, wide and large paws for swimming and walking in snow.
