What are some fun facts about biomes?

Biomes

Report as

Although the daytime temperatures of the desert biome are very hot, they can get very cold at night.
The Sahara Desert is the largest desert in the desert biome. It covers over 300 million square miles.
The vegetation does not grow very tall so the desert biome can only accommodate small animals, rodents, and reptiles. These animals can escape the harsh Sun by hiding under small scrubs or hiding in burrows.
Many desert animals tend to be nocturnal, sleeping during the day and coming out at night when the temperatures are more tolerable.
Because there is hardly any standing water in the desert biome, animals either store water in their bodies or get their water needs met by the foods they eat.
Dust storms occur when the wind picks up dust from the surface. These storms can be up to 1 mile high and travel over a hundred miles.
The plants that are able to grow in the desert biome store water in their stem. They normally grow spaced out so that their roots can extend and find water.
Some deserts are so hot that when it rains, the water evaporates in the air before ever hitting the ground.
Hope this helps
