Sand, Sand, and More Sand
When many people think of a desert they think of hot sand and scorching heat. This biome is the hottest biome on earth. This biome is treeless, and the only plants manage survive here are plants that managed to make the nesscesary adaptations to survive. They either have large root systems that soak up water quickly or long stems that can reach into the groundwater. Most plants have to develop spikes to protect themselves from being eaten. There are no decomposers in this biome, mostly because the soil conains too much sand. The majority of the animals in this biome are mostly active during the night because it is cooler. There are not many mammals mainly because there are not much food for them to feed on. The average temperature in this biome is from as low as 45 degrees to to over 100 degrees. Most of the rain that falls evaporates instantly. When it does rain it is usually less than 20 cm. Some species in the desert barely manage to survive, but it would be much worse if they were not adapted to that enviornment. The dunes here are great delecacies, and this place is a good location at night to see what it feels like at night. Enjoy yourself as you see many examples of great views of desert. Hey ideal place to make a sand casltle. Enjoy.
