Long before we colonized the world, animals existed in all four corners and in between them. From the frozen Arctic regions to the tropical rainforests, the fiery deserts and the cool oceans and seas, animals can be found on almost every inch of our planet.
Depending on where these animals are found, they have certain adaptations which are different from their ancestors, which allow them to not only survive, but to thrive in their environments.
The animals which live in the cold climates have adaptations which include: a very thick fur coat, layers of blubber or fat reserves, and some have the ability to desiccate (dry off, or remove moisture). Others cope by hibernating, digging underground, moving to warmer areas during the winter or changing the color of their coat to dissuade predators.
How well do you the animals which come from the coldest regions of the world? If you were given pictures of these animals, would you be able to guess their names or even tell which part of the world they come from? Only 7 percent of the population can. Will you be among them?
