Animal Habitat

Animal Habitat
Animals live everywhere on earth--in every kind of terrain and every kind of climate.
An animal's living place is called its habitat. Most animals are only adapted to live in one or two habitats. A baracuda which is a salt water fish could not live in a fresh water lake. A walrus could not live in a desert. A rattlesnake could not live for very long in the arctic.
Some animals migrate in the spring and again in the fall to find warmer habitats with an abundance of food.

The habitats are:

  1. Polar/arctic areas
  2. Mountains
  3. Oceans
  4. Deserts
  5. Savannah/grasslands/prairies
  6. Tropical rainforest
  7. Woodland/forest
  8. Tundra
  9. Taiga
  10. Wetland areas/marshes
  11. Pond
  12. Rivers/lakes
  13. Coral reef
  14. Deciduous forest
  15. Tide pool
  16. Cave
