A CAM Plant, which stands for Crassulacean acid metabolism is a plant that utilizes (CAM) as an adaption or arid conditions. Carbon dioxide enters the stomata at night, it is converted into organic acids, which releases CO2 in the Calvin Cylcle during the day, when the stomata is closed. A cactus is a great example of a CAM plant.

Bilateral symmetry, which is also called plane symmetry, will divided the organism into mirror image halves. Leaves often have bilateral symmetry because of their vein patterns. The leaf that I have found shows bilateral symmetry.

An adaption of an animal makes it possible for the animal to survive in particular places. They learn how to survive in the place that they live. This lizard has adapted to its environment, it is the color of the sand it is surrounded by in its home.

An exoskeleton is the internal skeleton that helps protect that animal’s body. They contain rigid and resistant components that fulfil a set of functional roles such as protection, sensing, support, feeding and acting against like a barrier desiccation in terrestrial animals. The turtle’s shell acts as an exoskeleton.

A segmented body of an animal is where the body is divided into different segments. Each body segment tends to repeat the same suite of structures. A grasshopper (like the ones above) have three parts: head, thorax, and abdomen.
