Deserts cover about one fifth of the Earth’s surface and occur where rainfall is less than 50 cm/year. There are 4 major types of deserts and they are classified by their characteristics
Some animals found in the desert are camels, lizards, oh and my favorites ... spiders, and snakes... certain ones though.
In the semi arid desert the average rainfall ranges from 2-4 cm annually. Summer temperatures usually average between 21-27° C. It normally does not go above 38° C
Rabbit are found in cold deserts. They have short, moist, and moderately warm summers with fairly long, cold winters. Annual precipitation has reached a maximum of 46 cm and a minimum of 9 cm.
The coastal deserts lie on the western coast of Africa and South America close to the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn.
the only plants that can survive in the hot and dry deserts are short shrubs and trees.
