Fact Sheet: Glass animals, adaptations and biology

Adaptations are specific characteristics of a living thing that increases the likelihood of its species survival in its habitat. Each species has their own suite of adaptations that can be broadly grouped into three categories: structural, functional, and behavioural. Many adaptations can be more than one type. For example, viviparous reproduction involves giving birth to live young. This involves the structural adaptation of a womb and may involve the behavioural adaptation of maternal care of young.
