What are some adaptations animals made to attract a mate?
some adaptations are bright colors,building nest to meet need of female,calls,fighting for the right to choose a mate
They make sounds to attract a mate to breed with or to compete with other males/females to mate. While actually mating, I can only assume they make noise because they are enjoying themselves. Some animals do not make noise during this procedure thought, like cuttlefish, who only take a split second to mate.
There are many varied in which animals compete with each other to attract a mate. A few are listed below: Scent - some animals are capable of producing a hormonal scent, females respond to this and are able to track the male. Colour display - many animals change colour at mating time, this is especially common in fish and chimpanzees. The colour change is used to show that the animal is 'available'. Mock fighting…
Ah, animal romance... find it so cute! Lots of different animals have lots of different ways to attract a mate. Loons make wonderful, elegant music to attract a female. Some even dance! The whooping crane and his/her mate dance for days, even weeks before having an egg. And the Tropical-Island bird (that's its name) Show off stunning bright feathers to impress the female. Many animals have even more ways of proposing. ;)
Animals make loud noises (howls, roars, whinnies, etc) for several reasons. * To communicate with other animals who are out of sight * To warn off animals who are in their territory * To warn animals that there is a predator in the area (this includes a human) * To show how fit and strong they are in order to attract a mate
