There are many different places where we can find living things. The place that a plant or animal is best suited to and where it is most likely to find everything it needs to survive is called its habitat.

A habitat is where a living thing makes its home. For an animal such as a whale, it can be as big as the ocean, or for a tiny insect it might be the damp soil under a rock.
