There are a lot of rabbits for them all to survive. The rabbits have to overproduce so that they do not go extinct or in danger.
Step 4: Adaptation
There are dark-furred rabbits and light-furred rabbits. There were two common types of genes for the fur of the rabbits, but a mutation occurred and a new shade of brown was formed.
The rabbits with too light or dark fur will be at a disadvantage in the environment. This is because they will not be able to camouflage and can be seen by the predators.
The mutation is advantageous for the species survival in the current environment. The trait will be passed down from parent to offspring.
This example shows Darwin's theory of Natural Selection because it shows how a mutation that is advantageous for the environment can make a species survive. This shows the four steps of natural selection.
