Animal Adaptations for Primary School - Reptile Encounters

Animal Adaptations for Primary School

How do animals survive their often treacherous conditions? Students can discover how animals use their ecological niche to seek food, and avoid predation, drought, and harsh environments. Students will understand common structural, behavioural, and physiological adaptations to the Australian environment and see these adaptations in our very own wildlife. An exciting and awe-inspiring experience.
