Tufted Deer Adaptation Project
An adaptation the tufted deer also has is that they have a bark that sounds like a dog. The bark helps them scare away other animals and they also bark when they sense prey. whozoo.org Information about Tufted Deer : WhoZoo
The tufted deer has four stomachs which helps the deer digest their food. Without these four stomachs, their food wouldn't be able to be broken down and they would not survive. www.lazoo.org Tufted deer are considered near threatened, and are hunted primarily by leopards and people.

4). Adaptations come from many years of evolution. Some traits that animals get can be bad, but only the fittest to live in a particular environment will survive, so that animal with the bad trait will die off. Eventually,, an aimal will get a certain trait that will help them survive. This trait will give them a huge advantage and this animal's children and grandchildren will survive the longest until an animal with a better trait comes along.
5). A population adapts over time, but an individual cannot adapt on it's own. An animal has certain genes when they are born and cannot change them throughout their lifetime.
6). I would consider a trait an adaptation when many generations have survived because of that trait. I say this because even if a trait seems like a good one, it might not help the animal survive. To make sure it is an adaptations several generations have to survive with that trait really helping them.
