Desert Animals

he animals that live in the desert usually have special adaptations that allow them to
survive the extreme temperatures and conditions that are present in a desert. A
good example of an animal with special adaptations is the camel. A camel can drink
very large amounts of water in one day or survive for a relatively long time without
drinking any water.

Some animals of the desert are also endangered, including the Lappet-Faced
Vulture, which is categorized as vulnerable. The World Conservation Union, or IUCN,
has a website which details the endangered status of many animals at

In this website there is also a section for savanna animals. The savanna is a unique
ecosystem that receives more rain than a desert but receives it in large amounts and
then is dry for long periods of time.
