As global warming becomes more present in today’s world, changes will start to arise in our environment. Rainforests are very humid places, but over thousands of years the rainforests will evolve into grasslands as water dries up. Lemurs have long fur, which is currently not a problem because they don’t get overheated due to the wetness in rainforests. After thousands of years once lemurs live on grasslands, they will have to adapt to the grasslands, where there is dry air, no shade, and little water available. Through the process of natural selection, lemurs will need to lose their fur to adapt to their new environment because, if they don’t, they will sweat a lot, which will cause them to lose lots of the water from their bodies. Since there is very little water available, these furry lemurs will die. Lemurs with less fur will survive and pass on their genes.
