The Questions

  • What do some animals do to avoid predators?
  • How do animals survive in their habitats?
  • Why can't animals live in other habitats?
  • Why do animals have fur or skin or scales, etc.?
  • How do predators sneak up on prey?

The awnsers

  • They can camouflage into their surroundings. I Wonder... How many animals can camouflage?
  • Some animals were made to fit in that habitat and some adapted to that habitat. I Wonder... What if there was only one habitat in the world?
  • I think they need their outer skin to survive in their habitats. I Wonder... What if every animal and human had the same skin?
  • They need that to survive in their certain habitat. I Wonder... How many animals live in one habitat?
  • They can hide in trees or bushes in the surrounding area. I Wonder... How many animals hunt one main type of prey?
