Today some jaguars live near the coast in the Amazon Rainforest. The jaguar today is a predator that drinks fresh water and has a spotted pattern on its fur. In the future climate change will turn part of the jaguar's habitat into a marshland. This will happen because the Earth will get so hot that a lot of its ice will melt. When the ice melts the sea levels will rise and flood part of the Amazon Rainforest. The salt water from the ocean will mix with the fresh water that the jaguars drink. In the future the jaguar will adapt to be able to drink salt water and its kidneys will adapt to flushing out the salt water. In the future the jaguar will also adapt to its new environment by losing its spotted pattern and becoming a darker brown to blend in.
