All living things have adaptations which help them to survive in the conditions where they live.

Animals which are adapted for cold environments are often large, with a small surface area;volume ratio.  They have thick layers of fat and fur.

Changing coat colour in the different seasons gives animals year round camoflage.

Animals which are adapted for hot environments include a large surface area;volume ratio, thin fur, little body with large surface area and avoid the sun during the day.

If animals didn't adapt to their surroundongs they would die.
