  1. Adaptations

  2. What is an adaptation? • An adjustment or change in the structure or behavior of an organism that makes it more suited to its environment.

  7. 2. Mimicry-when an animal copies another animal’s appearance, actions, or sounds Can you guess which one is a sea slug and which 
is the flatworm mimic? The sea slug gives off 
poisonous, smelly chemicals to discourage its 
predators.  Why would the flatworm want to 
look like the sea slug?

  8. 3. Chemical Defense

  9. Examples of Structural Adaptations

  10. Behavioral Adaptations • Things or actions that organisms do to survive Examples: bird calls, bird migrations
