Lizards have adapted both physically and behaviorally. Lizardsposition themselves in the sun to warm up so they can move. Theyhave adapted physically to allow their skin to retain moisture andrelease excess heat.
There are almost 3,800 species of lizards. Various types include: . gecko . frilled/frill-neck . iguana . goanna and other monitor lizards such as the komodo dragon . skink . legless lizard . chameleon . thorny devil . stumpy-tail . blue-tongue . Gila monster . blind lizard . wood liza…rd . leopard lizard . spinytail . bearded dragon and other dragons (members of the agamid family) (MORE)
1.Archaeological records indicate that hunter gatherers have lived in southern Africa for thousands of years (Shostak, 1981). Around two thousand years ago, the Bantu-speaking population began to migrate into the !Kung territory, bringing with them a much different way of life. Over the centuries th…ey have lived together, largely maintaining their individual traditions. However, years of exposure to the relative ease of village life, with its cultivated gardens, herds of goats, and permanent housing have made it difficult for the !Kung to withstand the lure of an apparent easier life. Drought and the impact of overgrazing on the availability of wildlife have been factors in these changes, along with exposure to the concept of wages for labor and role models from the outside world. Although a few !Kung still maintain their traditional lifestyle, most have succumbed to the pressures of change. 2.They just eat and sleep (MORE)
Winter hibernation, Specialized foot pads (ability to hang on the wall or any other object upside down), Break-away tails (sacrificial tail tip allows escape from attack), Regenerative tail tips, Specialized tongues. Protective coloring. Camouflage (ability to change coloration). More… Information:. Lizards like Geckos have very small hooks on the tips of their feet so they can climb almost any surface. Chameleons have long, retractable tongues which can be projected quickly and accurately to a length of about twice the length of the animal. (MORE)
Reptiles are adapted to their environments in two main ways. One is behavioural, and one is physical. Behavioural adaptations generally mean that a reptile will position itself in relation to the sun in various ways during the day. Stick his head out in the morning, whole body at noon, and start… to hide away again during the late afternoon. But there is a twist to this: he also adjusts the angle of his body to the sun to collect full on or less rays during the day, according to his needs. Physical adaptations include a hard confide outer epithelium which can retain moisture, but allow heat dispersion. The scaly layer will also create thickened pads for extra protection in areas of high impact and abrasion. At a cellular level, reptiles can actively adjust the rate of metabolism to increase or decrease as heat and energy requirements demand, thus they can be operational in environments which would be inhospitable to mammals, and can function in concert with their environments, but not dependant on it. reptiles also have the ability to extract so much moisture from their excreta, that they can actually excrete dry flakes. They do not urinate. (MORE)
Harsh conditions are conditions that humans would have a hard time living in or not be able to live in.
Cacti, pineapples, agaves, and geraniums are some plants that areadapted to hot, dry conditions. They would all survive well in thedesert.
Lizards have adapted to have a thick layer of skin, so they donÃ¢??tget dehydrated in the desert. This skin helps them not lose toomuch water throughout the day.
The adaptation of lizards is basking. Basking means staying still to keep warm because lizards are cold blooded. Lizards bask at summer time.
They form an endospore. An endospore is a thick cell wall that helps protect them. Endospores enable bacteria to lie dormant for extended periods of time when the environment is unfavorable (such as extreme temperatures, radiation, extreme pH levels, extreme pressures and harmful chemical agents)…. Then, when the environment becomes more favorable, the endospore can reactivate itself to the vegetative state. (MORE)
some lizards lose their tails when trying to escape from predators Also they are exothermic so they can allocate their energy to other life processes besides trying to stay warm or cool off. Scales prenent burining. there is a type of lizard that can run on water for short distances because of t…he type of scales on their feet and their speed. (MORE)
Well, they have claws and lungs. So, they can dig into the ground and also be able to breathe. Hope this helps! :)
Because a desert is an arid climate with intense heat that lizards need to survive. They are cold blooded and need the terrain they live in to regulate their body temperature rather than regulate it themselves like mammals. The fact that their skin is scaly and rough helps as well because with skin …like that you do not lose any moisture like other creatures, so they can go long periods of time without water, not unlike the cactus with thorns and big hollow like leaves that trap water and hold moisture for extended periods of time because obviously in a desert is does not rain all that often.

With the help of endospores, or thick-walled structures that help the bacteria survive harsh conditions..
Very harsh. Pioneer journals describe crossing flooded rivers and having whole wagons getting washed down river and how they lost everything. They write about the sickness, death, and heat. How, when going over the mountain passes, the wagons would go over a cliff and they would loose family members… and all of their stuff. That they would bury their dead along the trail and hope it was deep enough so animals wouldn't dig up the bodies. Of the fear of Indian attacks, of getting lost, of death of a child, of having enough food, weather conditions, and anything else. One woman writes about her husband dying on the trail leaving her with 6 children and a newborn baby. She keeps going, looses her wagon in the mountains pass, and when she and her children finally arrive in Oregon they are in rags, hungry, and on foot. We can't even imagine what these people when through. (MORE)
Lizards bury themselves in the sand to escape the boiling hottemperatures and They have scales to allow dew to collect on their skin to run intotheir mouths. Also, when threatened, the Texas horned lizards shootstreams of blood from the corners of their eyes, which confusestheir predators. Plus the …blood is mixed with a chemical that makesit taste bad to canine predators like wolves, coyotes, and domesticdogs. They can also puff up their bodies to make it difficult for apredator to swallow them. For more information, please click on the related links below. (MORE)
Wear loose clothing and less layers. the houses that are builtshould be cool. and do different activities. During the midday sunpeople generally stay sheltered and have a siesta. If they go outin the day they cover up with loose clothes to keep themselvesshaded cool. why do you want to live there an…yway. is kind of anobvious answer because when its really hot for us we try outdifferent ways to stay cool.

Bacteria can go into a sort of hibernated state to survive in more hostile-to-life environments, such as in places with no food or water. They have a thick cellular wall.
Find a dicotomus key based on the geographic location of the lizard found. If you are dealing with an exotic try to find a very broad dicotmus key online to help "key" out the lizard you are trying to identify
it is a superficial lizard so it protects it self from it's enemies by disapearing
What types of plants live on the rocky mountains and how how they adapted to this harsh environment?
they are small because of the rough terrain, bad air, and the fact that there are not enough nutrients to support large plants.
im not to positive but i think that they like hot dry areas because that's what they are used to so you might if you keeping it as a pet use a strong llight for it in its cage
Workers protested against harsh working conditions. This led to the formation of unions in order to protect the rights of the worker.
They invented the 'cowboy culture' with Texan hats, boots, horse-riding and many other traits specially adapted for life in the desert.
They can gliding as they live on the trees in the jungle for most of the time.
Desert lizards need to be able to store fat in case of lack of foodand endure long periods of time without water. They are alsotypically sand-colored to evade predators. In the case of the Gila monster and the Mexican beaded lizard,however, they have a poisonous bite, which they use to defendthemsel…ves and to kill prey which is scarce in the deserts ofMexico and the American Southwest.

by keeping warm using thick animal skin like polar bear skin (which is quite a popular one)
In the eyes of the Nazis, the deaf were of "minor value". The assumption that deafness was a "hereditary disease" lead to forced sterilization. Breitenau was a Nazi education and labor camp established in June 1933 in Germany. It was located in Guxhagen, ca. 15 km south of Kassel and was built aroun…d the Breitenau monastery. By the end of 1933, 11,000 people were arrested and placed in concentration camps. Only a few of them were brought to Breitenau. After the Law for the Prevention of Hereditarily Diseased Offspring was made, Breitenau officials began to test prisoners for hereditary diseases. Many of the prisoners who were found to have hereditary diseases were often transported to euthanasia killing centers or kept at Breitenau under penalty of being forcibly sterilized. (MORE)
The name of this spectacular lizard comes from the large leathery ruff or frill of skin around the neck. When the lizard is alarmed or faced with a potential threat, it opens its mouth widely thus erecting the frill in a flash of startling orange color. When the frill is fully extended it can r…each 12 inches (30.5 cm) across which makes the lizard appear much larger and more threatening to any potential predator. The resulting surprise usually allows the frilled lizard to make a quick escape. But if necessary, the lizard may hiss, jump toward the potential threat and repeatedly lash its tail on the ground to add to the threat. The frilled lizard prefers to run away rather than fight but is capable of inflicting painful bites, with its large canine teeth, on any predator. (MORE)
Adaption of Armadillo Girdled Lizard: . -Its nostrils are formed into tubes to help smell food or predators. - It has spiny scales that go all around its body. - When threatened, it rolls itself up like an armadillo with its tail held tightly in its jaw.

Koalas, which are not bears at all, do not necessarily have harsh living conditions, althoug it is true that they sometimes endure terrible heatwaves in southern Australia, which often lead to devastating bushfires. It lives mostly within the temperate zones. Its habitat is eucalypt woodland and …bushland , but of the several hundred species of eucalyptus ("gum trees"), koalas prefer about 60 varieties, with their specific preferences being limited to a couple of dozen. After that, there are still just one or two key species that a koala population must have to thrive, even if the number of trees of that species is only small. Koalas live in cool temperate zones, right up to hot, sub-tropical zones. They live in eucalyptus trees and are mostly nocturnal and eat certain types of eucalypt leaves exclusively. They are particular to Eastern Australia. Koalas live in a range of habitats, as long as there are abundant eucalyptus trees of the sort they prefer. They are found on coastal islands, tall eucalypt forests, bushland and low woodlands inland. Koalas spend most of their time nestled in the branches of their favoured trees. They do not shelter in tree hollows or nests, but sit comfortably wedged in between tree branches. Koalas are not found in rainforests, nor in grasslands or deserts. These biomes do not support the eucalyptus trees which koalas favour. They are also not found in Alpine or snowy regions. (MORE)
"Adelie Penguins, like the other three penguin types that breed onAntarctica's beaches, increase their body warmth by basking in the(usually) 24-hour sun, or by retreating to liquid water, which isalways warmer than the ambient Antarctic air. The home of all penguins is sea water, and that's where t…heir foodchain can be found. All penguins regulate their body heat throughthe layer of fat between their skin and their vital organs. Thiskeeps them warm wherever they are. No animal lives on Antarctica: it's too cold and there is on foodchain on land its land. (MORE)
Western Grey Kangaroos are uniquely adapted to survive life in Australia, a country that suffers frequent droughts. . The mother kangaroo spends most of her adult life pregnant, but in drought times, she has the ability to indefinitely "freeze" the development of the young embryo until food source…s are replenished. . The mother can also produce two different types of milk to suit the needs of two different aged joeys. She might have a more mature joey that spends less time in the pouch, while a very young embryo has attached itself to a teat. Each joey has different milk requirements - which the mother is able to supply. . Kangaroos are able to travel long distances at a high speed, expending very little energy. They are very energy-efficient, and this is linked directly to the physical action of bringing their hind legs up with each hop. Every hop literally refills the lungs. . Kangaroos have large, strong tendons in their hind legs which act as "springs". The springing motion requires less energy than running does, so kangaroos are able to bound for longer distances than other mammals with the standard four legs can run. They have strong back legs and elongated hind feet for bounding. . Kangaroos are strong swimmers. Many parts of Australia are subject to seasonal flooding rains, but the kangaroo's body shape does not prohibit it from swimming. In fact, kangaroos have been observed swimming to offshore islands off the southern coast. This is the only time the kangaroo's hind legs move independently of each other. . Kangaroos are more active in the cooler hours of the early morning and the late afternoon. During the heat of the day they are more sedentary, lying around quietly and chewing their cud. . The teeth of the kangaroo are continuously being worn down by the tough grasses they eat. Instead of continuously growing, once a kangaroo's front teeth are worn down completely, they fall out, and the back teeth move forwards to take the place of the worn front teeth. Kangaroos have four such pairs of chewing teeth. . Kangaroos have the ability to hear very well: kangaroos can twitch their ears. around to determine the direction of specific sounds, much as a cat does . They have long, strong tails for balancing. . Kangaroos are able to move their ears at a variety of angles to hear if there is any danger close to them. (MORE)
It has long pointed scales on its toes which provide extra grip on the sand which helps them to boast their speed in the desert.
They would make clothes out of fur, line in igloos, make hole in the ground and fish there, also they travel by dogs and sleds.
most lizard will adapt to the desert but not all. for example the bearded dragon will easily adapt to the desert, and the Chinese tree dragon will not so easily adapt to the dessert, they are used to the water and trees.
some lizards drink through their skin every drop of water they can save. They are also camouflaged to avoid predators
there are many different variations that they have created. Some will store water in their tails and use it when needed. Some are nocturnal so they don't need as much water. Many have very thick dry skin so that moisture is not released when not needed.
First of all, the purpose of natural selection is to "weed out" theorganisms in a species with imperfect qualities. Basically, it'sevolution's way of making the species that best it can be. An anteater eats insects (namely, ants) by sticking its snout andtongue through anthills and the ground. Obvi…ously, the longer thesnout of the anteater, the more possible bugs it can reach and,therefore, eat. So, over millions of years, anteaters with shortersnouts were not able to reach enough bugs and ended up dying. Theanteaters with longer snouts had more food available because theycould reach more bugs, so they were able to live long enough toreproduce and produce offspring with the preferred trait: having alonger snout.

The upper middle and higher class fled to another country. Everyone below found a hiding spot or were sent to concentration camps __ Not all upper and middle class fled. Many were rounded up and sent to concentration camps as well. Those that did manage to flee, usually went to other European coun…tries. As the Nazis moved in, they ran out of places to go. Many countries simply refused to allow them to migrate to their countries so they too were rounded up and sent to camps as well. (MORE)
The specific adaptation of the Artic Hare are multi-faceted. Outstanding among the whole are two abilities in particular. The hare has, in the winter coat, hair much like a polar bear, hollow shafts that "pipe" sunlight into the skin, which then directs greater bloodfloor to the warmer area of skin …surface. Next, the Hare is one of few creatures whose metabolic rate and process is variable based on external stimuli, ie: environmental temperature differentiation. (MORE)
The characteristics that help the cactus to adapt to its harsh environment are as follows:- *It's leaves are been modified to stems which prevents transpiration and save water for the plant *It's thorns protect it from eaten by any other animal.
there are many types of lizards out there mainly skinks here are some of the types. 1 the average skink ( highly common and found almost everywhere ) 2 the blue tongue skink ( uncommon and endangered these lizards lurk in some backyards and are mostly found in bushy areas ) 3 bearded dragon ( uncom…mon they spend atleast 60% of there lives in trees ) 4 water dragon ( common and can be found near any water source mainly found in groups ) 5 frilly dragon skink 6 blotched blue tongue ( endangered and rare to find mostly found in bushy areas) 7 pink tongue skink ( very rare can only be found near bush lands or shrubs they spend 90% of there lives in trees these are some of the lizards i know and have cought there are alot of them out there who are endangered and extinct and in the next 10-20 years scientists proclaim that 40 speicies of lizards will die out from glowbal warming hope i helped :) (MORE)
There are a number of bacteria that DO survive in harsh environments be it pH or temperature extremes or an environment that is very salty. Bacteria that don't survive in harsh conditions usually lose cell wall integrity and break apart, or lose all their intercellular fluid and shrivel up.
Some lizards lose their tails when trying to escape from predators. Also, these tails convulse vigorously when they fall thus scaring off the predator. For a moment it seems like the tail is actually living. Also they are exothermic so they can allocate their energy to other life processes besides… trying to stay warm or cool off. Scales prevent burning. There is a type of lizard that can run on water for short distances because of the type of scales on their feet and their speed. Some have the ability to camouflage. Some lizards have a physical adaptation of being see-through. Also, they can survive in habitats with extremely hot temperatures like deserts. they escape the heat by burying themselves inside the sand. Check out the link for detailed explanations for desert adaptations. (MORE)
Penguins breed on Antarctica's beaches during the summer months.When the weather becomes too harsh, an animal simply returns to theliquid sea, which is always warmer than the ambient air on land.Note that penguins are sea birds and live at sea, not on land.
Weather conditions do not have to be harsh to be adverse, they just have to be different than what they are at the present town. Adverse in a sense means opposite of.
