The Desert tortoise

Room 5 had to take notes on desert animals, deserts and adaptation. here is my animal report
     The survival of the Desert tortoise and its adaptations    


Adaptation is the change and difference that an animal makes to try and conquer the conditions and difficulty of living in their environment. The desert is a harsh environment, It's an environment we're water plays a crucial part in the survival of the living animals and plants in the desert. The Desert tortoise is an animal who has made adaptations that suit its body and the conditions of the Desert.

The desert is an arid environment. It's an environment where water is very scarce and valuable. Due to its extremely hot temperature animals find it hard to survive with very little water. Its hot temperature causes problems to living life making them have to adapt to amazing levels. Desert temperatures can reach up to 40 degrees and if there hot enough can go up to at least 80 decrees scorching the environment.

The desert tortoise is a animal with many survival techniques. The desert tortoise can live up to higher than 50 years old. Their thick solid shell shelters there body and protects them from predators. Additionally tortoises can also burrow in the ground also providing shade and protection. Their diet contains wildflowers grasses and cacti. Desert tortoises sometimes like to live in rocky places helping them camouflage like a rock.

The adaptations of the desert tortoises have been very successful. The desert tortoise has adapted to very little water, Being inactive during the day it is able to reduce water loss. When rain falls the desert tortoise digs into the sand and catches rain to drink. Desert tortoises have learnt to utilise use of water and only drink when desperately needed. The urine of the tortoise gets stored in its blood to reduce water loss. When felt threatened it would release it. This can cause death because of so much water being wasted

In conclusion the desert is a arid and difficult environment to live in. The desert tortoise is a very capable animal with many ways to help themselves live under these conditions. Adaptation is a complex complicated idea that has helped all animals and let them adapt to their environment. Overall adaptation is a process that changes animals, plants and people to help them become able to live easier in their harsh environment.

Best known for: Select your favourite piece of artwork you have done in class and justify why it is your favourite piece of artwork.
My favourite piece of artwork is my collage because it is a very nice color and they merge well too.
Influences: Based on the art collage what made you decide to choose that object and that colour.
I chose the blueberry because it is very common especially when they are nice. I chose blue because blue berries are blue and it's also a very nice color
Purpose of artwork: What was the purpose of the college? Refer to the WALT which was to  balance colour in a collage
The purpose was to make a piece of artwork by choosing a common thing you see and then get magazines cut out simple colors and merge them together
Creation of artwork: Explain the process of how you made the art college and how you balanced one colour in the art collage.
First I chose what I wanted to do then cut out lots of blue from magazines. Once I had cut lots out I glued them together on a piece of paper all joining and made sure everything was glued down.

Take a photo of your piece of artwork to be included in your artist profile and display it on your blog along with your artist profile.
