All organisms have adaptations that help them with some function. Their adaptations vary from organism to organism. For instance, carnivorous animals have enhanced legs for chasing down prey and enhanced cephalic formation. This cephalic formation is primarily a change in dentition that allows carnivores to tear through meat. Furthermore, herbivores have enhanced dentition as well. However, instead of using their teeth to tear through meat, their teeth are specialized for grinding so that they may break up plant material.
When it comes to bacteria, they have different types of adaptations. Many bacteria will secrete a polysaccharide and protein layer around themselves. This layer can be thick, thin, rigid (capsule), or flexible (slime layer). This layer helps bacteria resist water loss, bind to surfaces, and resist predators. Bacterial mucoid diagram
