Nature has provided the desert plants and animals the habitat to live in the scorchy heat of desert.For example a camel stores water inside its body so as to use it when needed.Similarly a cactus plant also stores water in it's spines .These animals and plants have developed themselves according to the conditions of desert .This helps them to survive in the desert.

Every creature in the desert has its own special ability like camals they have a large water storing stomuck can't spell that lol and has griping feet so they don't sink in the sand. Meerkats have amazingly good ears so they can listen to the sankes slithering through the sand!. Ad lizards can sink in the sand to hide away from creatures that want to kill them.

Hope you like my info :)

Many desert plants have thorns, spines, or a disagreeable taste or smell. This discourages animals that might eat them and so helps them survive. Little or no leaf surface prevents too much evaporation of water from the plant. When it comes to animals, they must be able to do without water for long periods, or be able to reach water holes at great distances. The camel, for example, is highly adapted to desert life. It has padded feet to walk on sand, a water-storing stomach, and humps of fat as a reserve supply of energy, and nostrils that can be closed to keep out sand during wind storms.
Many of the smaller desert creatures need to drink no water at all. They get what liquid they need from the sap of food plants and from night dew on leaves or stones.

To begin with, there are many kinds of deserts. Some are the familiar deserts of bare rock and shifting sand, upon which the hot sun beats down. But some deserts, such as the Gobi, have bitterly cold winters. So a desert is really a region where only special forms of life can exist. And the form of life is the kind that has managed to adapt itself to the particular conditions of the particular desert.
For example, cacti are well-known desert plants. They have thick, fleshy stems without true leaves. Desert shrubs that have leaves usually have small ones. Little or no leaf surface prevents too much evaporation of water from the plant.
Many desert plants have thorns, spines, or a disagreeable taste or smell. This discourages animals that might eat them and so helps them survive. Desert plants usually lie dormant during the dry or cool season, or drop seeds that can survive such a period.
When the period for growth arrives, the seeds germinate and give rise to plants that rapidly flower and drop more seeds. Within a few weeks or months, the plants are ready again for the long season of dormancy.
