Write the adaptations of Penguins and Polar Bears.

The adaptation of Polar Bears are:

1. A white appearance - works as a camouflage, which saves them from being prey on the snow and ice.

2. Large feet - help to distribute their body weight and increase grip on the ice.

3. Thick layers of fat and fur - behaves as insulation against the cold.

4. A greasy coat that sheds water after swimming - helps in reducing heat loss.

5. Muscle hump over the shoulder- helps in catching large/big prey.

6. Small round ears- don't allow the cold waters to enter into the ears.

7. Keen sense of smell- helps to search their prey easily even below the thick layer of ice.

The adaptation of Penguins are:

1. Webbed Feet - for powerful swimming. 

2. Streamlined Body - reduce drag in the water. 

3. Wings shaped like flippers - help them to swim underwater at speeds up to 15 mph.

4. Pointed Beaks - helps to catch fishes. 

5. Thick skin & Blubber (fats under the skin) - keeps them warm in the cold weather.
