    The bird type Pokémon Articuno has adapted to live in his cold, icy habitat on the Seafoams Islands. This paper discusses the adaptations he has developed and how they benefit him. His small surface area to volume ratio, dense feather arrangement, hydrophobic feathers, and blubber help him conserve heat. His long tail supplies him with extra warmth when he is sleeping. The lock wing mechanism allows him to fly without flapping his wings for thousands of miles. His talons, eyes and strong claws allow him to catch and kill prey quickly.
