Animals in the Desert Biome
The desert is a challenging environment for all the organisms in its biome. Animals, however, have a special problem. Their life processes cannot function if their body temperatures exceed a certain range. Death will ensue. The animals that live, and even thrive in the desert have developed behavioral and anatomical characteristics that help them cope with extreme heat and water scarcity.
