Learning the stages of Natural Selection with my made up characters.
Hey! Do you know what I know about Natural Selection? Natural Selection is a basic mechanism in evolution.
There are four parts to this mechanism. Over-production, Inherited Variation, Struggle to Survive, and then Successful Reproduction.
Struggle to Survive, it's where only the BEST live to adulthood. Finally, Successful Reproduction, the best adapted genes stay in their gene pool for next generations.
First we have overproduction, obviously it's where one produces more offspring. Inherited Variation, where offspring may be similar but not identical to parents.
This is Kantai, she was in a pack of 9 when her parent overproduced. Because her mom was a unique color, so was she, with very little color of her fathers. Kantai is a very swift and average sized bunny, so she survived when a lot of bunnies didn't.
That means Kantai is an example of Natural Selection and supports Darwin's theory of Evolution. And since the beneficial traits are passed on through generations, Earth's history is changed with the better suited animals.
I hope this explained Natural Selection to you! Have fun learning which animals have better adapted to our quickly changing planet.
