When we hear the word adapt, one of the first things that comes to mind is "fitting in." We as people always have to adapt or change to different situations or places.
For animals, adaptation is often a matter of life or death! If animals don't adapt to their surroundings(their environment), they will not survive. Humans even use technology to adapt. For example, think of the space suits used by astronauts to control their temperature and for breathing so they can survive on their trip to space.
Technology may be okay for humans to use, but for the rest of the animals in the world, adaptation means having certain body parts or behaviors that allow the animals to survive and live in their environments.
