How does Natural Selection lead to adaptation in population?
The organisms that help survive in the given environment is called adaptation. The mutations or random changes in organisms gene help the animals survive.
Overpopulation and the Struggle to survive
The lizards are being able to change the environement.
Survival and Reproduction of the Fittest
Flat tailed lizard is a mutation in the Mitochondria DNA. Belong to an ancestral population with more genetic variation.
Changes in the Gene Pool
Females lay eggs once a year from September to December. They lay up to 10 eggs but only 3-7 eggs survive. The eggs are a leathery shells to protect and prevent from drying out and dying.
Some run really with toe fringed and spiny scales. Some bury burrow into the sand to escape desert heat and predators.
The 2 gene pool in the Thorny devil is brown, yellow, and tan, this mutation bury in burrow to hide . The 2nd color is white, black, yellow, and tan. This lizard shows off it's running skills to get the females.
