really need help
....what sort of help?
um...... well there is how they adapt to live in their ecosystems like surface area to volume ratio and stuff......................... just ask what you need! :)
well in hot countries animals have a higher surface area:volume ratio (think of elephants who have lots of skin (wrinkles) because they need to lose heat to keep from overheating)
whereas in cold places animals have a lower surface area:volume ratio because they need to conserve their body heat in order to keep a constant of 37 degrees temperature
also think about ear size...animals in cold countries have smaller ears (polar bears-to lose least heat) and animals in hot countries have bis ears (elephants to lose maximum amount of heat)
Here are some revision cards on the topic :
