Fur colour • While arctic rabbits have a whitish fur colour to camouflage the white background of winter, but in autumn the same colour changes to brown or reddish to mingle with the surroundings. European rabbits have a colour similar to the shades of the ground too.

KOMODO CAN SURVIVE FROM THE ENEMIES IN THE ENVIRONMENT • Its claws that scratch and attack • Can camouflaged in its natural habitat • Can run up to 30 mph in the shorts bursts but most of time conserves energy to maintain its body heat.
KOMODO DRAGON’s ADAPTATION These lizards can reach lengths of 10 feet and weigh up to 300 pounds. They are very aggressive meat eaters and are known to take down animals as big as deers. Their jaws work so hard that the Komodo dragon grows four new sets of teeth per year.
The Komodo dragon has very deadly bacteria present in its saliva at all times. This bacteria is not harmful to the dragon, but if the dragon bites another animal, that animal will die of disease within a week.
The Komodo dragon will then use its giant claws and powerful jaws to rip apart the prey, swallowing chunks of meat whole. Usually, when a Komodo Dragon attacks, it usually ambushes it's prey and lunges at its prey's throat first. One Komodo was recorded consuming 85% of its body weight in one sitting. There are only 5,000 Komodo dragons living in the wild.
