2.5 Desert Habitat

Deserts are very dry places because they receive little or no rain fall. They can be very hot in the day and very cold at night. The ground is often rocky or sandy. The plants and animals that live in the desert have to survive with very less water.

Camels can survive for a long time without water because they drink and store enormous amounts of water when they find it. Their fatty humps store food.

Cactus plants are well adapted to grow in the deserts. They store water in their thick, fleshy stems. They often have sharp spines to stop thirsty animals from eating them.

Lizards live in the hot desert. Their bodies do well in the heat. They like to lie on the warm rocks and bask in the blazing sunshine.
