The Sahara Desert is the 2nd biggest in the world, behind Antarctica (yes, its a desert)
Although there aren't any permanent homes in the Sahara, there are some nomadic tribes.
The sand dunes in the Sahara can get to be over 590 ft. high
Bound by water
The Sahara's boundaries are the Atlantic Ocean, Mediterranean Sea, Red Sea, and Niger River.
The climate has varied between extremes, but is currently dry and arid.
Camels and goats are the usual domestic animals in the Sahara Desert.
