Animals and plants are adapted to their habitats. This means that they have special features that help them to survive.
An African elephant, for example, lives in a hot habitat and has very large ears that it flaps to keep cool. A polar bear, on the other hand, lives in a cold habitat and has thick fur to keep warm.
Here are some plants and animals that have adapted to living in a pond habitat.
a. Frog - The frog has webbed feet to help it swim quickly.
b. Water spider - Hair-like bristles cover the abdomen, which allows the spider to breathe underwater.
c. Lily pad - The lily pad has a jelly-like substance on the bottom of its leaves to make it hard for insects to grab on to it.
