Best Answer

An individual squirrel does not adapt to an environment. However species of animals become adapted to their environment over time by the process of natural selection (survival and breeding of the fittest individuals).

It would therefore be correct to ask:-

"How is the arctic squirrel (as a species) adapted to the tundra environment".

The adaptation one may expect may include:

  • Thicker, more insulating fur
  • White winter coats
  • Storage of winter food during the summer
  • Hibernation
  • Adaptations of the body to prevent the extremities freezing
  • becoming larger
