Animal Adaptation All living things have to be suited to their environment if  they are to survive. Fish have streamlined bodies, fins and specially shaped  tails to help them move quickly and easily through the  water.  Squirrels have sharp, strong claws for gripping tree trunks  and branches and strong teeth for eating nuts.
