Animals of the Desert
Life in the desert has little rain and is very,very, hot. Animals have to adapt to the desert by finding food at night and digging burrows to stay in to stay cool. Also animals have to store food and water like camels since the desert has little rain. Animals depend on each other for food so humans shouldn't kill one animal because that sends a ripple down or up the food chain. Another way animals have had to adapt is to migrate like birds or raise body temperature to protect them from the heat of the midday sun. Humans have been affecting the desert by killing plants which cause animals to have no food or shelter. Also desert cities are growing fast. People are building stores, roads, and houses and are crowding out desert animals. People are also washing away soil and overgrowing land. People can change this though. People can start by staying on trails. Also not disturbing animals and not trampling over shelters can help.Even though animals have a harsh climate there are many animals that live in the desert.
Some desert animals include insects, spiders, deer, foxes, wolves, snakes, lizards, camels, woodpeckers, eagles, wrens, grasshoppers, owls, scorpions, coyotes, rats, rabbits, skunks, ants, and thrashers. Those are some facts about animals of the desert.
