Part C

Observing Feeding Behaviors

8. Find three examples of fish that use different methods for feeding.

9. For each species, record its common and scientific names in Table 3, and describe its feeding method.

Analysis and Conclusions

1. How are the body shapes of the fishes you observed related to the types of activities that those fishes engage in?

2. What structural adaptations are associated with the different feeding behaviors that you observed?

3. How does camouflage help fish to survive in the cases where you observed it?

4. Would you expect camouflage to be more important for fish that live in shallow water or for those that live in very deep water? Explain your reasoning.

Further Inquiry

Design an experiment about fish behavior using fish sold at a local pet store and materials available in your classroom. Report the results of your experiment in an oral presentation.
