Description
Exploring the desert is an unforgettable experience. Most days there is not a cloud to shade the blazing sun. Within minutes, exposed skin shows signs of sunburn. Even the sunlight reflected from the ground damages the skin. Hundreds of animal species live in the desert, big and small. How do they survive with so little water, the extreme heat, and a limited, and sometimes toxic, food supply? Author Ana Maria Rodríguez explores many of the amazing animals in this extreme environment.
