An adaptation is a characteristic that "evolved" to a particular condition that allows the animal to survive. Something is adaptive if it is a useful trait, but not necessarily produced in response to a given selection pressure. Basically, a trait is an adaptation if it is the product of the selection and adaptation if it is beneficial in the present time.
