-

a clownfish needs warm salty
water, algae, zoo plankton and isopods to
survive.

around its body to keep it safe from anemone
stings. The male can switch to female if the
female dies.


Variations, tolerances, and adaptations


There are 850 variations of crab such as the
Japanese Spider Crab and the Pea Crab.

sea worms and the ability to scavenge.


Adaptations


crabs have a hard exoskeleton to
protect themselves from predators. Antenna
that can sense vibrations, and pinchers for
defense and getting food.


Variations, tolerances and adaptations


There are many types of coral such as blue
coral, brain coral, tube coral, and table coral.


Tolerances


coral needs warm salty water,
firm sand, and phytoplankton to survive.


Adaptations


certain toxins in soft coral make
it unappetizing for predators. Some types of
coral produce toxins that eliminate predators
and increase their living space.



Variations, tolerances, and Adaptations

-
Faced Spider Monkey and the

Decatur Crabs snip pieces of sponges and
imbed them in their shells. (commensalism)


Cleaner Shrimp clean out fish mouth. The fish
gets a clean mouth and the shrimp gets and
easy meal. ( mutualism)


Agouti opens the Brazil nut tree’s nuts and eats
some of them, but scatters the rest of the seeds.
(mutualism)
