Which of the following best describes a heritable adaptation brought about by natural selection? Answer Early humans learn to make tools like flint arrows and knives to help them hunt more efficiently. Mountain goats restrict their range to higher altitudes because of warmer low-altitude temperatures. Polar bears begin to eat goose eggs as a way to survive when seals, their usual prey, are not available. Snowshoe hares change their fur from white to brown to match their warm summer habitats.

    Oooh that's a hard one very tricky. I would have to say D, the snowshoe hare, because this fur characteristic is something inherited, which is what heritable means... no guarantees though, but that's my though... good luck

    snow show hares! all the others are behavioral traits and we have yet to see clear links of behavioral inheritance in animals
