My animal is a gorilla. Gorillas live in the tropical rainforests. My animal’s present habitat is the tropical rainforest, My animals habitat will still be the tropical rainforest in the future but a much hotter version of the tropical rainforest. Some of the gorilla’s food will die out because of climate change. Some of the food in the gorillas diet cannot handle high heat. For example some of the food on their diets are bamboo shoots, stems, and fruits. If the food dies out that can make the gorilla skinnier, hungry, and less healthy. Gorillas are way less strong the more skinny they are so not having their muscles could be difficult to adapt too. The temperature is predicted to go up 10% by 2050. If this keeps up, 70% of the gorilla population could go down in 20 years.
