About the desert

  • Even though it is very hot during daytime it can be very cold at night.
  • Many desert animals are nocturnal, sleeping during the day coming out at night when weather is more tolerable
  • Hardly any standing water in deserts, so animals store their water in their bodies or gets water by the means they eat.
  • Some deserts are so hot when it rains, the water evaporates before hitting the ground.
  • Hot, dry, and not a lot of plants growing.
