The Desert Biome
By: Kyle Janssen; Quentin
Sand, Sand, and more Sand
Less than 50 cm per year
Kangaroo Rat: It adapted to the lack of water in the desert.
Camel: The hump of the camel is used to store water since very little rain falls per year
Big Horn Sheep: Body built for this terrain.
Cactus Wren: Rough feet to prevent cactus thorns.
Desert Toad: The shape of this toad’s body is used as camouflage. It actually makes some animal think is a rock or stone on the ground.
Armadillo Lizard: Rolls into a ball to get away
Cactus Ferruginous Pygmy Owls: Its size helps it hide in small places.
Thorny Desert: Shoots blood out of its eyes at its attacker.
Bobcat: Its fur is used as camouflage to stalk its prey.
Tarantula: its “hair” is used to irate the attackers skin and give it a chance to get away.
