My creature is a jaguar. In the future, rain forests might turn into a flat dryland with only tree stumps. Jaguars might not survive, but if they did, they might adapt to sleep in dens/ buros dug in the ground. Their claws might get sharper because they aren't climbing trees that dull them anymore. If deforestation continues, lots of animals can/ will go extinct. If this happens, jaguars might have to adapt to eat plants as well as animals. Their skin might adapt to produce a special type of oil to protect them from the sun because they will not have the forest canopy to cover them. And last but not least, baby jaguars might have to stay with their mothers longer because of the low food supply and not enough places for shelter.
