How do animals adapt to their environments? Jessica learned that Jellyfish adapted with their poisonous tentacles and soft body parts, and she predicts that in 10,000 years it will have heavy chain tentacles to make it go deeper and be even more poisonous. Orabella learned about a lizards long tongue to catch prey, and predicts in 10,000 that they will have eyes that can see in the dark and sticky feet to climb trees.
