ADAPTATIONS: cactus is one of a few plants able to survive in harsh conditions. TheSpikes pricked around the cactus has a very useful purpose for storing water into the skin.
An example would be the Camel. The camel has thick, leathery lips that enable it to eat spiky plants like cactus. Eating cactus allows it to have more moisture in its body which would keep the camel going for about 1 week to a few months depending on the weather.
The camel’s hooves allowing them to spread their weight evenly and not sink into the sand.
Another example would be the Fox. Their adaptations are its huge ears. They use this to cool down body heat on boiling days. They also have extra fur on the soles of their feet which helps them grip onto loose sand when running. The color of the fur helps reflect heat and provide camouflage to the sandy landscape.
