Q4) Describe the aerial adaptations in birds.



Adaptations in aerial animals:

  1. Their body is streamlined. This shape provides little resistance during flight.
  2. Forelimbs are modified into wings and hindlimbs are shifted forward to balance their body weight.
  3. Flight muscles are present to provide additional strength during the flight.
  4. All birds have a light body as the bones are hollow and have air cavities. Their bones do not have bone marrow.
