In general, animals act i ways that help them to survive within their specific habits. However, sometimes an animal species may display a behavior that no longer serves a clear purpose. The original purpose for the behavior may have disappeared long ago, even thousands of years before. These behavior, known as relict behaviors, were useful to the animal when the species' habitat was different; but now, because of the changed condition, the behavior no longer serves its original purpose. left over from the earlier time, the behavior remains as a relict, or remnant, long after the environment circumstance that influenced its evolution has vanished.
