Deserts are the hottest, driest places on earth. Nevertheless, some animals have adapted to the harsh desert conditions and thrive in the environment. This book explores deserts of the world, including the Sahara, Kalahari, Gobi and Great Victoria and takes a look at the mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates that live there. From camels, sand cats and moles to falcons, owls, geckos, snakes and ants, this is an exciting and colourful exploration of desert life. With colour photos, artwork and maps.
