Predation is a biological interaction where one organism, the predator, eats another organism, its prey. To survive and thrive, both predator and prey species possess very different adaptations. Predators have adaptations that enable them to catch and kill their prey. Prey animals have adaptations to fight or avoid their predators. In this workshop, students will meet a variety of predator and prey species and apply their keen observation skills to differentiate between their adaptations.
