The presence of climate allows animals to shapeshift.
Shapeshifting is the natural process by which an animal alters its form in response to specific stimuli, sometimes changing its size and appearance while simultaneously changing behavior. In nature, animals use their bodies as their homes, and their surroundings as their habitat. Climate allows animals to shapeshift naturally to regulate their environments.
The climate is change. Everything is constantly changing from minute to minute – it’s hard to keep track of all the changes that occur within our world on a daily basis. Extreme weather events such as hurricanes, tornadoes, snow storms, and heat waves are not uncommon. On the larger scale, climate change has caused massive changes in the last century. One example would be the ice-age; although no one predicted this natural phenomenon, it did happen and has drastically impacted climate and precipitation over the last century.
Because climate is so predictable, changing temperatures and precipitation are naturally translated into behavior changes for animals. For example, birds have a very accurate idea of their temperature and precipitation for the day; this information enables them to nest, build nests, and prepare for the winter. The animals that live in the area will notice weather patterns as they come and go, so animals will adapt their habitats to match these seasonal changes in temperature and precipitation.
Temperature and precipitation may cause changes in behavior in animals, but temperature and precipitation alone cannot account for all of an animal’s environment. Other factors such as food availability and shelter contribute as well. The organisms living in an area will also notice changes in their environment, resulting in a net change in their daily life. It is these subtle interactions between climate and the organisms that allow animals to successfully shapeshift.
To understand how climate allows animals to shapeshift, it is important to understand how temperature and precipitation change over time. Over time, weather conditions tend to change. A typical spring climate experiences a period of extreme temperature fluctuations; at the same time, precipitation can fall dramatically. This combined with the fact that animals must travel long distances to get to their winter shelter, creates a climate environment where animals can experience physiological changes from one season to the next.
Temperature is one of the most fundamental aspects of climate. When the temperature of an area increases, animals must use more of their body heat to increase their temperature, which results in increased metabolism. As a result, their body temperature rises above the base level of the environment. This rise in temperature is often accompanied by changes in precipitation. These changes may be quite dramatic, depending on the seasonal climate of an area.
Climate also tends to induce changes in precipitation. This precipitation is associated with the seasonal temperature fluctuations. The end result is that animals must adapt to these changes in temperature and precipitation if they are to survive in their new environment.
In short, climate allows animals to change both their appearance and behavior. Shapeshifting is especially evident in the way animals interact with each other. The existence of climate allows animals to interact in very strange ways. These behaviors often serve an important purpose for animals. It is these behaviors, which allow them to adapt to their new environment and remain alive.
For example, consider the lives of mountain goats. These animals spend much of their time in burrows that are protected from the temperatures and wind that prevail over the hills. As long as the climate is right, they will not be affected by the harsh elements of the land. However, when the climate changes, things change for the animals.
If the climate temperature drops below freezing, the animals will have problems with their feet. Their hooves may crack and freeze. As their feet thaw, they will not be able to walk over uneven surfaces. They will not be able to jump high enough into areas where the temperature has suddenly increased. All of these behaviors are affected by the temperature climate of an area. This explains why it is so important for people living in warmer climates to leave some space between them and the plants and trees that they need to shelter from the cold climate.
Climate allows animals to shapeshift because it creates a state of equilibrium in their bodies. Without this equilibrium, they would quickly become ill and possibly meet an unfortunate fate. A sudden change in the weather can often change the balance of a climate. Therefore, plants and trees must be left alone as the animals work their way out of the climate.
