Adapt and survive

Desert animals:

  • Large surface area compared to volume - lose more body heat - helps to stop overheating
  • Efficient with water - lose less water by producing small amounts of concentrated urine - also make little sweat
  • Good in hot, sandy conditions - very thin layer of body fat - helps them to lose body heat. Camels keep nearly all their fat in their humps. Sandy colour - good camoflague

Artic animals:

  • Small surface area compared to volume - reduce heat lose
  • Well insulated - thick layer of blubber for insulation…
