What is a habitat? Blue Planet Biomes
A habitat is a place where a plant or animal lives. Just like you have a home, so do animals and plants. When we talk about an animal’s or a plant's habitat it is more like a neighborhood. An animal needs five things to survive in its habitat:
food water shelter air a place to raise its young
Habitats can be big like a forest or they can be much smaller like a nest. Some animals roam over a large area, while some other animals need only a small amount of space. Just like you have to go to the store to get food, an animal leaves their "home" to get the things they need to live. If the animal's needs aren't met, it will move to a better habitat. Different animals need different habitats. A fish needs clean water in which to live. A grasshopper, however, needs a big space where it can hop and leaves that it can eat.
