               Adaptation
• An alteration or adjustment in structure or
  habits, often hereditary, by which a
  species individual improves its condition in
  relation to its environment
         Types of adaptation
• Structural- e.g. a snails shell ,to protect it
  from predators.

• Behavioral- e.g. a turtle going into its shell,
  to get away from predators

• Physiological- e.g. a snake producing
  venom, to kill its prey.
             Tiger adaptations
• Structural- A tiger's body is built for capturing and
  killing large prey through stealth and sudden attack The
  forelimbs and shoulders are well-muscled, and the
  forelegs can twist inward, enabling the tiger to grab and
  hold large prey.
• Behavioral- In the wild, tigers probably live about 15
  years. Tigers in zoos have lived 16 to 18 years
• Physiological- The jaws are short and powerful, and
  generally contain 30 teeth.
  Incisor teeth help to grab hold of prey as well as pull
  meat off bones
