How do animals survive in arctic?
well... every animal is designed to do something
for example polar bears are designed to stick out the arctic
or like the koala their are designed to stick out hot weather even tough they had heavy fur
Animals: Polar Bears Arctic Fox Caribou Arctic Hare Snowy Owl Musk Ox The animals have special adaptations to survive in the frigid cold. Most of them have thick fur and blubber that keeps them warm. Plants: Arctic Moss Arctic Willow Bearberry Caribou Moss Labrador Tea Plants in the tundra have to adapt to little sunlight and water.
The concept of this question is backwards. The question implies that somehow the arctic ecosystem has designed itself to meet the needs of the plants and animals that live there. The arctic (or any other ecosystem) does not and cannot do this. The question is (or should be) "How have the plants and animals that live in the arctic adapted to survive in under those conditions?"
Both the Arctic and Antarctica are extreme polar environments. Both lack sunlight some times of the year, they lack warmth, and in the case of Antarctica, it lacks any viable food chain to support any kind of animal life. Animals that survive in these extreme environments have found habitats where they can survive. Survive-ability means access to a food chain, protection from predators and the space and safety to reproduce. Both polar environments include vast…
*Animals* Obviously, keeping warm. The animal needs reliable protection against low temperatures and bitter winds. They will also need to be very skilled at finding food to survive, so a diverse diet of animals (and plants for some, although rare in most of the Arctic) and keen senses of smell are necessary. Of course, speed is a nice addition to survival skills. The animals need to be fast enough to catch prey and to run…
