"Adap-adaptation, changes in the body to fit, a location!" (Ugh, we had to listen to that stupid song 12 times in 3rd grade! :P) Basically, the creature adapts to survive in its environment. This can mean growing thick fur, developing double-eyelashs, or any other change that can help the animal survive.
Adaptation refers to the adjustment or changes in behavior, physiology and structure of an organism to become more suited to an environment. The adjustment can be in the eyes, body structure or feeding behavior. They are all meant to help the organism survive.
