Turtle Time!

17 07 2008

This week we learned that an adaptation is something an animal inherits from its parents that helps it to survive. Turtles, for example, have a variety of adaptations. They have strong shells that act as unique shielding mechanisms for protection from predators. With their very own coat of armor, turtles have no need to be swift on foot. Color patterns covering their shells also aid in survival, camouflaging them from predators.
