In other words if one specific area is affected, there is still a greater chance of survival for these species. ~ Having a diverse diet is also a key characteristic when it comes to survival. This type of a diet ensures that there is always for food available for the species. As result, it is necessary for animals to have to attribute for them survive mass extinction. ~ When a majority of an animal's population is killed off, it becomes esstial for animals to have a fast reproduction rate make it easier to repopulate, following a mass extinction. Characteristics of Survival According to scientists there are still at least four different species of horseshoe crabs found in the oceans of Asia and America to this day. Thisprovides evidence to scientists that Horseshoe crabs have been able to use there positive characteristics to survive the Permian Mass extinction, 252 million years ago. This furthers shows that evolution has had a major effect on Horseshoe crabs we see today. The Feature above display the evolution of a shrew. By looking at these fossil records, scientists have been able to come to the conclusion that Shrews have evolved over time to fit their environment. a lot over time.
