T4、动物seasonal机制。1：保证存活，兔子warm season换短毛，相对的换长毛，保证其不冷不热地生存下去。2：防止捕食者，S动物冬天换白毛，捕食者不容易发现他，因此他可以生存。 背景知识 Main Idea: Two ways that animal molting helps them to survive. Way 1: Animals could change into the coat that is suitable to the weather.
Eg. Mountain hares (Europe) have thin and short coat in summer when the weather is warm, and they change the lighter coat into their winter coat, with the hairs twice as long and much thicker to prevent from the coldness. Way 2: Animals can change the color of their coat to protect themselves from predators. Eg: North America weasels have brown coat for the summer season. But when winter comes, when there is usually snow on the ground, they molt and change into white color, which helps them to blend in with the environment to help themselves from being identified.
