penguin by Aryan


Adaptation means that you change and get use to the environment. Also Antarctica is the biggest cold desert in the world. This desert has cold animals like penguins, seals, polar bears and fish.

In Antarctica the water temperature can’t get above freezing also penguins don’t fly furthermore Antarctica is getting smaller and that means that the ice is melting and then the water will rise. In Antarctica it snows and there a lot of ice. Some people live in the icy desert one animal that has adapted to the freezing desert is the penguin.

The penguin is smart when a group of penguins are going to the water they don’t go straight in they will push each other down to see if there is a seal because the seals are the predator of a penguin. These mammals lay eggs and keep their eggs between their legs to keep the eggs warm. These penguins have a way to keep warm they will huddle together and it would also keep the eggs warm to. These wonderful creatures can be easy to find because some live in packs so you can find a bunch of them.                                                                                                                         

The penguins in the humongous cold desert have adapted like the polar bear because of it’s fur furthermore some penguins have also because of their blubber (fat) and because they huddle together to keep warm. If they don’t adapt to the snowy desert then they will die and they would always have to huddle together to keep warm. The dark coloured feathers of a penguin's back surface absorb heat from the sun, so helping them to warm up as well.

In conclusion, the dessert is a harsh environment and have malicious temperatures that makes it hard for the plants to grow. The penguins are not nocturnal and have adapted in the cold desert by their fur.In summery Adaptation changes things to be able to live in their habitat and not be too hot or too cold.
