DESERT ANIMALS ADAPTATION
Camels adapt to the environment using their humps. The humps store fats and they use it when they run out of water or get dehydrated. The fats that is stored in the humps then metabolises or break down the fat into water. Camels have large and wide feet so they can walk on the sand without sinking and the skin coloured fur helps them blend in with their environment.
Meerkats has adapted to their environment by using their eyes to see a wide view of what their looking at ,this help stop their predators from getting a high chance by sneaking up. Meerkats eat lizards, eggs, rodents and scorpion, they are immune to scorpion sting so they can eat the scorpion witout being poisoned. When a group of meerkats go to find foods, 1-2 meerkats will stay back and be alert for danger.
Dingoes has adapted to the hot evironment by using their pointy ear to assist the dingo for hunting. The dingoes fur is very short and this helps them when the temperature of the environment gets very hot, dingoes use howling to defend their territory and send warning signals to their pack.
Cactus are a potosynthetic so they use light from the sun for energy to grow. This is one adaptation of the cactus because at the desert it is very hot which means there are lots and lots of lghts. Cactus spines are not like other they collect the moisture of the air then it lets it fall slowly down to the roots, this is a behavorioral.
Palm tree adaptation
Palm tree leaves help stop the amount of water loss and it also hold the rainfalls and wind. The tall trunk of the palm tree helps access the air and sunlight above the other trees, it also stores the nutrients When the palm need to grow. Palm trees had adapted for protection, they have spines that can cause pain and also infection that can hurt a lot.
Desert sage adaptation
The Desert sage is well adapted to their environment, their hairy leaves reflects the sunlight and their leaves do a process called photosynthesis meaning they get the sunlight and use it to produce food. The sage leaves have a special type of oil that protects them from animals that are herbivores meaning animals that don't eat meat.
