A desert is a very dry terrain.For the animals that inhabit the desert cannot always find water. However, many small desert animals do not need that much water. They get water they need by eating desert plants which has water in them.
During the day, most desert animals stay underground or in the shade. The scorching hot sun would make them sweat thus causing them losing much of the water in their bodies. To overcome this problem, these animals come out only during the night when it is cooler
The camel is one of the few desert creatures which need water. However once it has taken a drink, it can go on for days without drinking . Its body can store a lot of water. It can stay out in the hot sun because it does'nt sweat alot and therefore it hardly loses any of the water in its body.
