2.1 What is a Habitat?

For an animal, a habitat is a place where the animal lives, eats, sleeps, makes its home, has babies, and gets along with other animals. But it is not just any kind of place. An animal's habitat is a special place because the animal is suited to it. A fish is suited to live in water. An earthworm is suited to live under the ground. A polar bear lives near the north pole. A camel is suited to live in the desert.

Forests and grasslands are habitats, so are mountains, deserts, and the frozen lands around the poles. Water forms many different habitats, too. There are fresh water habitats in rivers and lakes; and salty water habitats are found in the sea.

Animals and plants are adapted to live in their habitats. Some animals can live in only one habitat. A habitat can be enormous, such as a great forest or it can be tiny. Even a small stone forms a habitat for the animals living underneath it.

Different animals live in different habitats. The way an animal lives has a lot to do with its habitat.
