My animal is the ruby-throated hummingbird. They presently live in the Amazon rainforest. This bird can fly forward, backward, and upside down! They only weigh 0.11 oz, and their wings beat 53 times per second. Even though they are so tiny, the ruby-throated hummingbird can fly up to 27 miles per hour! In my picture, the plant population decreases more and more, causing the ruby-throated hummingbird to decrease in population, along with the rainforest itself. I believe that the ruby-throated hummingbird will eventually camouflage with its surroundings to avoid predators, and its claws will become sharper so they will be able to fight when predators attack. I also think that their feathers will become thinner because it is getting warmer in the rainforest. These adaptations will not only help them stay alive but will also allow them to adapt to their habitat.
