Homeostasis is the maintenance of a relatively stable and constant internal environment, in light of changes in both the internal and external conditions. To maintain this stable condition, organisms must keep themselves within optimum biological parameters, of conditions such as temperature, water balance and nitrogenous wastes. This can be done through many mechanisms, which can differ between species. Two organisms we observed at the perth zoo include the desert hopping mouse, and the asian elephant. Although the organisms are (evidently) very dissimilar, they do also have many similarities when it comes to homeostatic adaptations.
