Answers (1)

Mammals have significantly adapted the most among the vertebrates. They can be found across a diverse range of habitats like deserts, plains, and mountains. They diverge in the type of jaws and sexes are separate, and fertilisation is internal. They
have a couple of limbs which are used for walking, burrowing, climbing etc. They have the mammary glands, which produces milk that is used to feed their young ones. They are warm-blooded which in turn helps them regulate their body temperature efficiently in
all types of weather conditions. They have hair-like arrangements that work as an insulation against cold temperatures. The heart present in mammals has four chambers and their brains are highly developed. Some examples of mammals are Whales, Humans, Dogs, Cows, etc
The significant features which make them most adaptive can be summarised as below:

  • They consume organic material for their survival.
  • They undertake sexual reproduction
  • Animals that are living together are engaged in complicated interactions with each other and thereby form the part of a ‘’food web.’’
  • In total, there are more than seven million different animal species.
  • Animals breathe oxygen in and then release out carbon dioxide.
