How do Camels and Fishes adapt themselves to their respective habitats?

The adaptation of Camels respective to their habitats are as follows:

1. They have large flat padded feet, that helps them to walk easily on the sand in the hot desert.

2. Their long legs keep the body away from the heat of the sand.

3. They are equipped with double eyelashes, which acts as a shield from sandstorms. 

4. They have thick eyebrows that protect their eyes from the scorching heat of the desert sun.

5. They have a hump on their back which is filled with fat, which is metabolised for energy when the camel does not get anything to eat.

6. They excrete very little water from their body through dry dung.

7. They have nostrils that can open and close so that they don't get sand up to its nose.

8. They have thick lips and rough tongue so that they can eat the prickly desert plants without feeling pain.

9. They have ears covered with hair even from the inside, which helps them keep out sand or dust from their ears.

The adaptation of Fishes respective to their habitats are as follows:

1. They have gills that allow them to breathe oxygen in the water.

2. They have a stream-lined body that reduces water resistance while swimming.

3. They have a system of muscles for movement. 

4. They have a skeleton made up of thin bones with a flexible backbone.

5. They have fins and tails to help them swim, change direction and to keep the body balanced.
